Our Members -- The Alliance for Affordable Energy

How the Alliance May Use Your Contribution:

$6.25/month ($75/year): Provides a workshop to educate 40 school children about energy use and the environment and how they and their families can use energy more efficiently.

$10/month: Helps 60 low-income first-time home buyers participate in a program to make their homes more energy efficient.

$20/month: Pays the filing cost in a utility rate proceeding that will allow the Alliance to win millions of dollars in rate refunds on behalf of local utility ratepayers.

What the Alliance Can Do for You and Louisiana:
The Alliance has helped Louisiana energy consumers save hundreds of million of dollars on utility bills by challenging unfair utility rate hikes

An Example of the Alliance In Action:
Only minutes before City Council was scheduled to vote on an electric rate increase in New Orleans, the Alliance for Affordable Energy obtained a $476 million judgment for ratepayers over utility management errors and cost overruns at the Grand Gulf nuclear power plant. Needless to say, the vote on the rate increase was set aside.
