Welcome to LEDs Magazine’s News & Insights for Nov. 1, 2023. Halloween night is over and there was a small chance of a snow flurry forecasted for our area earlier today. While the snow didn’t materialize, it makes me think about those who find themselves in areas or communities with unreliable power infrastructure. They need all the access to incentives and administrative support resources for energy projects that they can get. It gratifies me to hear today from speakers during the U.S. Department of Energy’s Justice week program outlining the incredible public response in diverse communities ranging from the Hawaiian island of Molokai to tribal communities to the Gulf Coast city of New Orleans, which are highly impacted by climate events and natural disasters. Not only is the U.S. government expanding opportunities to navigate and receive funding, but highly localized groups are bringing better and cleaner infrastructure to their neighborhoods and encouraging their residents to be a part of those efforts. Energy, lighting, and controls technology should be accessible to all in order to bolster community resiliency. Stay tuned for more on this Energy Justice day portion of the week’s program.
