Energy Film Highlights Utility Industry and Consumer-Led Clean Energy

Clean energy advocates announce free film screening series across commonwealth

Screenings in Bowling Green • Danville • Frankfort •
Lexington • Louisville • Springfield • Northern KY
(Schedules/Dates below)

The Kentucky Conservation Foundation is partnering with NAACP’s Kentucky Climate and Environmental Justice Committee, along with other local partners, to bring free screenings of the short film “CURRENT REVOLUTION – Transforming America’s Electric Grid” to five cities in Kentucky.

For decades, the utilities industry has been a driving engine of the U.S. economy, contributing to our progress and standard of living with a business model that focused on centralized generation. But now, as our energy economy changes, power companies face a crisis that requires them to adapt to survive in the 21st century. Current Revolution outlines this crisis and its opportunities.

The film provides important context for the state’s recent decision to make changes to the regulation and management of roof top solar power. Rate Changes for consumer rooftop solar will now be before the Kentucky Public Service Commission, with public comment open until September 20th (Information here).

These screenings of Current Revolution are sponsored by Kentucky Conservation Foundation and  local partners for specific film showings. The screenings will be followed by an audience question and answer session with representatives available to share information about their work to solve climate change by prioritizing cleaner, dependable technology.
