New Partners operates at the intersection of a critical environmental goal (combating climate change) and a critical social goal (addressing the economic needs of vulnerable populations). It produces clean, renewable energy in a variety of locations south-facing walls, shade canopies, green roofs partnering with nonprofit affordable housing developers, and distributing all energy benefits to families and individuals with low incomes, many of whom are disproportionately affected by pollution and climate change. (Respiratory illnesses like childhood asthma are aggravated by pollution and traditional energy costs make already-expensive housing even less affordable.) New Partners also promotes job training that enables residents with low incomes and returning citizens to participate in, and benefit from, the green economy. While building access has been challenging and new projects now take more time, New Partners is committed to ongoing development and to the new jobs that will help us recover.
