High-Impact Clean Energy Actions

How to Make Your Energy Matter

Some climate actions make a bigger impact than others. Here are steps individuals can take today to reduce climate-harming emissions.

First, keep in mind:
  1. Start with one action. It’s easy to get overwhelmed and do nothing!
  2. Most people want to take climate action too. Studies show the majority of Americans (78%) want action on climate, yet people dramatically underestimate how many others feel the same way.
  3. You have more influence than you realize. Talking about climate and showing others you are taking action motivates those around you to take action. Start with your personal network — tell them what steps you’re taking.

Influence your networks and advocate

  • Influence your networks. Help your workplace, book club, neighbors, family, or place of worship go green (share this list with them!)
  • Vote and campaign for clean energy candidates and policies.
  • Attend a local energy board public meeting – state regulatory boards are powerful and decide how, when, and where clean energy projects are built in your state. Oil and gas interests have deep influence with many of the boards. Their meetings are open to the public and they need to hear from residents pushing for local clean energy solutions. Learn more, start attending, and bring friends.
