DERRICK HOLLIE IS THE FOUNDER OF THE ENERGY POVERTY PREVENTION PROJECT.
Derrick Hollie is the founder of The Energy Poverty Prevention Project. One of the issues Hollie does the most work on is working to reduce energy poverty which occurs when individuals and families are unable to afford basic heating, electric and gas needs.
Hollie has appeared before Congress five times to give witness testimony on energy poverty and other related issues. His testimony before the House Natural Resources Committee and recommendations inspired H.R. 4266, The Energy Poverty Prevention and Accountability Act, a bill that will ensure all Americans have access to affordable, safe and reliable energy.
Hollie is also an award award-winning education and outreach campaign leader for the federal government, frequent television guest commentator, and business leader within the private and nonprofit sectors.
Most recently, Hollie served as a Presidential appointee as Director of The Office of Small and Disadvantaged Business Utilization for the U.S. Dept. of Transportation. His work sparks significant enthusiasm across political and cultural and social backgrounds.
