Community-Centered Approaches to Engagement Webinar

February 27 @ 1:00 pm - 2:00 pm

In this Peer Connect Webinar, we will focus on community-based strategies for consumer outreach and education in green utility practices related to the smart grid rollout in the Chicago area. Initial upgrades to Illinois’s aging power grid began in 2012, and part of the investment made by the Act was the creation of the Illinois Science and Energy Innovation Foundation (ISEIF), a nonprofit to help consumers understand and benefit from the new electrical system. To fulfill this aim, ISEIF has allocated over $30 million to 135 community grants since 2014 to conduct grassroots energy education and outreach and study the impact. This webinar will highlight perspectives from ISEIF, the funder; an outreach grantee, Elevate Energy; and researchers investigating the impact of these efforts, Loyola University and Heartland Alliance.
