OUR PROMISE: We are optimistic about the future and we are committed to being a part of the solution.
16% of the USA population lives in a distressed community, impacting over 52 million peoples livelihoods and businesses.
Distressed communities and small businesses have little to no access to essential and critical project development funding sources necessary to overcome the burdens of high energy costs.
There is an uneven distribution of resources. This allows for 3X higher energy burdens than non-low-income households and many struggling businesses.
- Affordable energy for all
GEMM COMM is passionate about providing more opportunity for all. We serve the interest of underserved households, under resourced businesses, and community-based organizations.
Energy resilience is not just a local or state initiative, it is a global priority to increase environmental justice and improve racial equity for both vulnerable households and other economically challenged markets to allow for equitable and balanced energy spending.
We do not believe there can be a better future if historically marginalized communities are left behind. We know our solutions empower households, increase safety, health, and economic development, and we know this will lead to a better future.
