People. Place. Power.

Join the Partnership for Southern Equity and the Just Energy Circle for the 2018 Just Energy Summit! The Summit will weave community, policy, business and civic voices into collective action towards a more equitable, inclusive, clean energy future for Metro Atlanta and the American South. Launched in 2016 as an initiative of PSE’s Just Energy Circle, the vision for this two-day forum is to inspire positive discourse as we connect the dots between equity and energy regulation, distribution and policy in the southeast. The 2018 Summit will serve as a collaborative space for community, policy, business and civic voices to engage in shared learning and incite collective action towards a more equitable, inclusive, clean energy future for Metro Atlanta and the American South. The Summit welcomes all who value equity, inclusion, and prosperity. No prior experience with energy issues is required to participate!
