New Energy and Transition

A Just Transition to a thriving clean energy economy is possible in Kentucky - one that works for all of us no matter our color or gender, where we come from, or how much money we have.

Today Kentuckians in every corner of our state are organizing through KFTC to build New Power in all its forms: new economic power, new political power and new, clean energy power.

Together we are working to:

  • Shape a just transition by, with, and for workers and communities affected by job losses, racial and economic injustice, and environmental devastation.

  • Build energy democracy through local solutions that help all Kentuckians save money, save energy, own and benefit from renewable energy, and create or benefit from new, good clean energy jobs. 

  • Accelerate sustainable energy in Kentucky through better public policies and fair regulation of monopoly electric utilities.

If you share this vision, please get involved with KFTC and take action today.
