Driving Demand for Clean Energy in Ohio

UpGrade Ohio connects people with local resources to reduce energy use and to access renewable energy solutions, paving the way for a sustainable energy transition in the state of Ohio. With collaboration, we hope to support a strong mandate to implement clean energy reform.

UpGrade Ohio will transform the energy economy in Ohio by engaging Appalachian Ohio citizens in energy awareness, resulting in collective action that reduces energy consumption, increases energy efficiency, spurs technological innovation, and improves long-term economic and environmental sustainability for the region.
