Georgia General Assembly House Bill 762 established the Fulton Technology and Energy Enhancement Authority (FTEEA). The bill, sponsored by Representative Mesha Mainor (D-56), intends to make Fulton County a player in public infrastructure to address energy sustainability and distributional equity. Specifically, the act seeks to reduce the energy burden in vulnerable communities of Fulton County and Atlanta through local, sustainable initiatives (Pendered, 2021). While this organization’s goals are lofty, there is little guidance on how best to achieve these milestones. As FTEEA grows as an organization and begins implementing programs for Fulton County residents, determining the best practice recommendations of organizations with similar goals will guide the development of FTEEA. These recommendations will help FTEEA understand why some organizations aimed at increasing energy sustainability and energy justice succeed and others fail. This research aims to determine best practice recommendations for FTEEA based on comparisons between three organizations that address energy sustainability and energy justice in the United States.
