Citizens Local Energy Action Network, Incorporated, (CLEAN) is a non-profit, non-partisan organization whose members are on a mission to create a cleaner, safer place to live and work through innovation in our approach to energy supplies. We come from all walks of life and are committed to bringing the benefits of clean energy to our region. We invite you to join us in this mission to build a better and clean energy future.

A Community Focus
We foster partnerships with area businesses, government, community leaders, and our neighbors to build consensus across the political spectrum, aiming at providing a cleaner and, ultimately, a more livable environment. CLEAN is not a political group; our goal is to inform our community of new technologies, initiatives and systems that will aid in keeping our environment vibrant and clean.

We have a broad outlook that fits under the saying, think globally, act locally. This gives us the ability to connect more closely with our area communities, providing local solutions and a forum to help in the transition to a more sustainable energy infrastructure.

Committed to the Environment
As part of that commitment, CLEAN is deeply involved in developing plans, driving studies and providing information to the public and government officials on the harmful effects of fossil fuel energy and the potential offered by developing a sustainable energy structure.
