Building Support to Expand Markets

CGA is a trusted source for fact-based information on renewable energy.

To help reach the point of broad acceptance of renewables, ongoing public education and outreach are needed.  We provide and champion this work.

Our Approach:

  • Educate:  CGA works to educate law-makers, decision makers at state regulatory agencies, the media and the general public about the benefits of renewable energy.
  • Activate:  CGA mobilizes its members to attend legislative and regulatory agency hearings, and become active advocates for renewables in their local communities and the media.
  • Coordinate:  CGA coordinates with its members and other NGO partners to advance the public conversation about renewable energy through the media.
