At Energy Alabama we are leading the way through community activism. We fight for you and represent you as we work to pass legislation favorable to sustainable energy, remove obstacles that block the growth of sustainable energy, and educate regular Alabamians on how to make their voices heard to their elected officials.
We focus on policies that build Alabama up, step by step, to achieve a future of sustainable energy for all. No matter where in Alabama you live.
Fight the Solar Tax – Thanks to YOUR efforts, we won the chance to have a public hearing on Alabama Power’s $5/KW solar tax, the highest such fee in the country. You can still sign our petition to show that you support energy freedom in Alabama and oppose Alabama Power’s discriminatory solar tax.
Fight for Energy Freedom – Third party ownership allows you to buy power from a source other than your current electric provider. We believe you should have the right to purchase energy from anyone you want. Third party ownership increases competition and strengthens the market. We believe this is good policy. Voice your support for Energy Freedom in Alabama.
Reject Unneeded Gas – Alabama Power wants to add 2 gigawatts (~200,000 homes worth!) of new generating capacity at a cost of $1.1 billion to Alabama.
Just two years ago, Alabama Power said it wouldn’t need new generation sources until 2035. So why the sudden change? Did the Company get a sizeable influx of new customers? Did customers start using a lot more electricity? No and no. Demand for electricity is declining, and Alabama Power has ample capacity to meet its customers’ needs. So what changed? A corporate need for profit, not serving customers.
