Climate Action Campaign is looking for a Clean Energy Fellow―the one to get us to
100% and Change Everything.
Our mission is simple: Stop climate change.
Our goal is bold: 100% clean energy.
Our bar is high: We need 100% of our team to be 100% in. We engage real people across a
wide spectrum of interests and perspectives including businesses, decision makers, advocates, organizers, allies, and cultures with inspired communication and actionable information to make big change and help people imagine and do what’s possible.
We aim to revolutionize and democratize all forms of power—fossil fuels, solar, wind and most importantly, economic and political power. One strategy to achieve this is through Community Choice Energy (CCE)—an alternative to the status quo, monopoly energy system and the clearest path to 100% clean energy.
In 2017, CAC charged up its 100% clean energy goal with a campaign focused on community education and building a broad base of support for Community Choice Energy in the City of San Diego, with the end goal of helping secure the City’s adoption of a CCE program by 2018. The campaign seeks to build out a diverse coalition, known as the San Diego Community Choice Alliance, in support of CCE in the City of San Diego.
As a Clean Energy Fellow, you will advance the campaign for 100% for at least six months, with potential to extend. The Clean Energy Fellowship is an opportunity for individuals to engage and advance public policy related to the City of San Diego’s hallmark and ground-breaking 100% clean energy climate plan.
