Amanda Krantz and Sara Heimlich started this petition to Tulane Administration and

Students Sara Heimlich and Amanda Krantz are working to bring solar energy to Tulane's campus. Tulane administration committed itself to a Climate Action Plan in 2015, which expired in 2020. The only promise not fulfilled--or even touched--is a solar initiative.

We are urging the Tulane administration to not only engage in solar energy but to introduce the community solar model to campus.  Community solar is a set of regulations recently passed by the New Orleans City Council. It provides low-income New Orleans residents with discounted Entergy energy bills without them having to install solar panels on their homes. Instead, New Orleanians are "subscribing" to Tulane's solar project (at no additional cost).

Essentially, community solar is a way to engage Tulane in clean energy while combatting environmental issues that disproportionately affect BIPOC. Tulane has the opportunity to be a host site for the Community Solar project; this project would actively benefit the greater New Orleans community while also providing clean energy. Tulane should use its position in the city of New Orleans for the greater good-- we are not only requesting that Tulane invests in green energy, but also that they do so in a manner that actively benefits the city.

Help us move forward with this project by signing this petition.
