WHAT IS emPOWER?

emPOWER is a coordinated L.A. County-wide outreach program with a mission to overcome barriers to sustainable energy usage commonly experienced in low-income and working class communities of color.

Liberty Hill is working with nine community-based organization partners with historic ties to the communities of South L.A., Boyle Heights, East L.A., Pomona, El Monte, Commerce, Bell, Bell Gardens, South Gate, Pacoima, West and North Long Beach, and Inglewood to expand access to, and encourage the use of available energy rebates, upgrades and other incentives that can help residents save up to thousands of dollars per year.

We have received approximately $2 million from a variety of public, nonprofit and private sector funders including SoCal Edison, the Los Angeles Department of Water and Power, GRID Alternatives, Electrify America and South Coast AQMD to fund our partners’ outreach efforts in local communities
