The Texas Tech University School of Law’s Energy Law Program hosted a screening of Switch Energy Alliance’s second film, Switch On, on March 9, 2020.
William R. Keffer, Janet Scivally and David Copeland - Endowed Professor of Energy Law and Director of Energy Law Programs, organized the screening as a part of the law school’s Energy Law Lecture Series. Keffer believes that the documentary tackles a complicated issue in a clear and effective way. “Simple message: energy poverty equals economic poverty,” Keffer said. “Access to cheap, abundant, reliable energy equals opportunity and economic prosperity.”
In Switch On, we’re taken across the developing world, where billions of people suffer from the lack of safe and reliable energy -- impacting education, food supply, healthcare, and the economy. Dr. Scott Tinker embarks on an amazing global adventure, to meet people and communities as they Switch On. In a journey that’s enlightening and emotional, uplifting and unforgettable, Switch On will change the way you look at energy and the developing world forever.
The TTU screening had an audience of 140 viewers, consisting of law students, students from the university’s main campus, and people from the Lubbock community. Dr. Scott Tinker attended the screening and answered audience questions about the film and energy poverty, as well.
At SEA, we’re delighted to see that Switch On is resonating with audiences like the original documentary Switch did eight years ago. We look forward to continuing to promote objective, non-partisan energy education.
