New Energy and Transition

Right now, today, we have our best chance in generations to build New Power with good jobs, cleaner energy, and more people participating in decisions affecting our lives.

Here at KFTC we're helping to build New Power through:

Our over-dependence on coal and other extractive industries has taken a heavy toll on our health, environment, and democracy. Together we can address the problems caused by Old Power and transition to a new, clean energy economy.

If you share this vision for our state, get involved with KFTC and take action today.

Our Work


Appalachian Transition

Economic transition is already happening in Central Appalachia. KFTC and our allies are working to promote a just and sustainable transition for coal workers and communities.

Renew East Kentucky

Renew East Kentucky is an organizing campaign to move Kentucky’s rural electric co-ops toward cleaner energy, increased energy efficiency, and more open and democratic governance – as well as thousands of new jobs.

Sustainable Energy

Across Kentucky, we’re transitioning to clean energy in small and large ways. KFTC is working to advance clean, sustainable, affordable energy solutions by winning new energy policies and demonstrating the benefits of clean energy.
