Energy is intertwined with Louisiana’s economic, environmental, coastal, and social identity, the Alliance for Affordable Energy is the leading organization developing policy solutions to bring affordable, clean energy to every resident in the state, while addressing our most troubling energy concerns. Our work focuses on policy change at the New Orleans City Council and the Louisiana Public Service Commission.
As climate change alters our physical landscape, Louisiana must address the underlying cause the problem that our current energy system is helping to create. The Alliance aims to move our “energy state” into a 21st century energy economy. We work to reduce energy costs, reduce greenhouse gas emissions, and add modern, renewable, efficient, and clean energy options throughout the state. These solutions will change our energy identity and create balanced development that will help our economy thrive, sustain our communities, create well-paying jobs, and ensure a healthy future for Louisiana.
The Alliance is the sole entity expressly dedicated to defending the interests of residents and small businesses who want to see a clean and affordable energy future, where health impacts are considered alongside environmental and economic opportunity costs. We work to ensure residents don’t pay more than their fair share. No other organization is connecting the dots among these issues for residents and working to change policy to improve consumers lives. We are leading a groundswell of change by educating consumers, decision-makers, and utilities.
