In my 56 years on this planet, I have never experienced the level of extended chaos and uncertainty caused by the coronavirus pandemic. While everyone is having to manage through an array of individual challenges, what comforts me is learning approaches for navigating forward in a healthy and productive manner.
In that spirit, I share the approach being taken by me personally and the Clean Coalition collectively. We are tightening our focus on achieving the Clean Coalition’s mission to accelerate the transition to renewable energy and a modern grid. From our programs work on Solar Microgrids and renewables-driven Community Microgrids to our policy work designing and implementing policies & market mechanisms that set the foundation for achieving the Clean Coalition’s mission, every Clean Coalition team member is performing at full speed on the gradient path. (It is worth noting that we are accustomed to working remotely.)
The coronavirus pandemic has forced the Clean Coalition’s leadership team to prioritize efforts and to triage resources. Our enhanced focus is vital given that the impacts of climate change and other human-driven planetary degradation are beyond the point of being reversible without significant and thoughtful intervention. And given that these impacts threaten sustainability for all living beings, there is never a moment to waste.
I hope the Clean Coalition's efforts will provide tangible benefits to your community as we tighten our focus on delivering an unparalleled trifecta of economic, environmental, and resilience benefits to communities. I also hope that you will join our efforts by supporting and replicating Clean Coalition initiatives in whatever manner you can.
I speak for the entire Clean Coalition team when I say that we send you positive energy for being as healthy and productive as possible.
Craig Lewis, Executive Director
