People’s Utility Justice Playbook
The People’s Utility Justice Playbook is meant to support community and ratepayer advocates, energy democracy activists, and others confronting energy utilities. The first section focuses on the different types of fights waged between utilities and energy activists across the country so that readers can identify why and how they may be targeted. The second section explores the strategies and tactics that utilities use against energy democracy activists during these different fights and the methods activists use to effectively push back.
