Why join

The local government leaders coalition gives you the charge you need to electrify your community. Electrification reduces emissions, improves health, and creates good-paying jobs that can’t be outsourced. From policy and tools to media attention and opportunities to connect with leading government and business partners, our coalition helps you accelerate your goals and expand electric opportunity for your community.

What you get

Policy design + support

Our team offers support and actionable recommendations to simplify the local electrification journey and help you think through policy and programming.

Rewiring Communities

Selected communities that commit to electrification at scale will receive significant additional tailored policy, technical assistance, and financing support from Rewiring America and our partners to help you succeed. 

Connection + amplification

We provide networking opportunities with local, state, and federal officials as well as business leaders from around the country. We will help you organize and execute educational events and provide thought leadership opportunities supported by our media team.

As a local elected official working on climate action policy, it’s incredibly helpful to sit in a (Zoom) room with other leaders from across the Country who are working on similar issues. Rewiring America, among all the other great work they’re doing, is playing an essential role in bringing local climate champions together to compare notes, share ideas and learn from one another. They truly embody the spirit of “we’re all in this together!"

Jen WolosinMayor
Menlo Park, CA

As the mayor of a small borough in Pennsylvania, Rewiring America has been a strong partner for electrification as a means to attain climate stability, energy conservation, and cost savings. The Rewiring America staff have a prescient ability to distill complex technical topics, climate science, and policy into simple and actionable items. For example, one of my favorite tools is the IRA-Calculator. Partnership with Rewiring America's Local Leaders for Electrification can help communities more easily improve quality of life, mitigate climate change, and act on environmental justice.

Gamal SherifMayor
Rutledge PA

As a local elected official, I want to do all I can to help my community innovate, save money and do our part to reduce pollution through electrification. Technology and policy changes are coming rapidly and I appreciate having Rewiring America dedicated to helping me keep up to effectively advocate for my corner of the world.

Melissa CheathamCouncil Member - Ward 2
City of Overland Park, KS

Burlington was recognized as the first city in the nation to source our electricity from 100% renewable generation in 2014. Building on that accomplishment, I’ve worked as Mayor to advance our efforts in Burlington to meet one of the most ambitious local climate goals in the country – to become a Net Zero Energy city by 2030 across the electric, thermal, and ground transportation sectors. Through public power utility incentives, city policies, and efforts to lead by example with our own city fleet, Burlington is embracing electrification as the strategy that can help us decarbonize while supporting a strong local economy and better, healthier lives for our residents. Communities can and must lead on climate, and I’m proud to be a Mayor for Electrification with Rewiring America leading the charge.

Miro Weinberger,Mayor
Burlington, VT

Whether it’s more frequent and severe flooding, growing lakefront erosion, a diminishing tree canopy, or rising energy costs, climate change is wreaking havoc across Chicago—and it’s not letting up. I'm grateful for the opportunity to work alongside Rewiring America and other climate leaders to help Chicago do its part in tackling the climate crisis head-on by expanding EV charging infrastructure, decarbonizing new and existing buildings, and increasing our reliance on renewable energy.
