Great Rivers works to promote public health and to decrease carbon pollution by encouraging cleaner energy. Our program consists of several projects. We advocate for the Public Service Commission to reward utilities for switching to solar, wind and energy efficiency. We monitor actions taken by government and utilities to see whether they would be detrimental to air quality and public health. We take action to challenge permits for polluting industries and facilities and if necessary challenge these facilities in court. Our Energy Program is also our Climate Change program, as Missouri’s energy production contributes a huge number of global-warming causing pollutants.
