To meet state clean energy goals, building new clean energy infrastructure has become more critical than ever. Yet, many communities are often skeptical or resistant to these changes when they begin to take shape in their back yards. How do we bring communities along to say, "Yes In My Back Yard (YIMBY)"?
On Wednesday, July 12, 2023, Advanced Energy United hosted a conversation designed to equip stakeholders, policymakers, and clean energy advocates with the necessary tools and techniques to engage and educate local communities about the immense benefits of the critical transmission and clean energy infrastructure being built in their neighborhoods.
