The EEA is a nonprofit designed just for you – the individual! Whether you are a professional working in the industry, or someone concerned about the future and the direction we are headed, the EEA will give you a voice. The EEA unites manufacturers (Sponsors), member companies (Energy Professionals), and consumers (members) who want to make a difference in making clean energy the predominant source of energy in the USA!

There is something you can do!

There is power in numbers

We’ve designed the EEA to take advantage of each member category’s strengths as well as provide benefits to everyone involved. Read on to see how Sponsors, Energy Professionals and Members can change the future for clean energy while growing their business and forming new connections with other like-minded members. 

Members

Energy Professionals

The EEA was founded by an energy pro just like you. We know what type of organization works for energy pros. You understand that clean energy is not just best for the environment, it’s good for the economy. Your membership allows you to be part of the solution. Help create a cleaner environment while growing your business.

How can we make a difference?

We make a difference by education and advocacy. There is so much work to be done. The EEA has chosen four areas to focus on. Right now every state should have Net Metering, Loan Programs, Batteries and Load Shifting and Carbon Tax. Learn more about these below.

Net meter

Net Metering

Net metering allows utility customers to generate their own electricity cleanly and efficiently. During the day, most solar customers produce more electricity than they consume; net metering allows them to export that power to the grid and reduce their future electric bills.

We need a universal 100% net metering law for everyone, one that pays a decent rate to those who put extra power back in for all to use. We need it quickly, and with your help, we intend to see that it happens.

Loan Program

We believe there needs to be a state-mandated system in all 50 states that would allow lenders and installers alike to offer loans on systems that would be collected as an assessment with the property taxes with low risk and low interest, and benefit all involved.
 We will be asking members to help us leverage lawmakers to implement this type of loan system. It will cost very little to implement and have far-reaching effects in bringing systems online and helping in making this world a better place.

Load Shifting

Load shifting refers to the shifting of energy usage from one period of time to another on a recurring basis, often by storing energy produced during off-peak hours and using the energy during peak hours to support loads. We will be working hard to not only start allowing people to put in systems that shift the load and provide a personal backup when the grid goes down, but also to give people incentive, by providing fair compensation, to produce extra, much needed, clean power that is currently being prevented.

Carbon Tax

Putting carbon and other pollutants in the air is having devastating effects, and will only continue to get worse.  Problem is that those doing the polluting are not paying for the damage they are doing. 
 Nothing will change until the true costs of fossil fuels is covered by fossil fuels.
Economists of all political persuasions agree “the best way to tackle climate change, they insist, is through a global carbon tax.” With your help, we’ll see that the US implements a carbon tax. 

We’re Running Out of Time

While we are making progress, there is still a lot of work to be done. Any progress in clean energy tends to be incremental and there is a constant danger of losing any gains due to policy and law changes. We need to make a bigger difference at a faster rate.

We are in a real battle, and the stakes couldn’t be higher. I have been involved for over 40 years now and most people don’t realize how hard and how long it took to get this far. Too much is at stake to go backwards, and it’s happening in far too many places. We shouldn’t have to fight our government to get the changes we need to survive. The fossil fuel industry along with the power companies have us in a death grip with almost unlimited money to protect the status quo. But there is one thing politicians love more than money…power, and real power comes from people. We have the technology today to make a real difference, and more is coming on line everyday. We all just need to come together so we can make our voices heard. We live in a world that is being destroyed by the way we produce energy at a time when it is unnecessary. To lend your voice and be a part of one of the most important movements of our time please take a minute and join now.
