Crystal Huang of People Power Solar Cooperative is our partner for October Fourth Friday to talk about how communities are being activated through energy ownership.
We’ll start with a few engaging short videos to kick-start a discussion around energy.
As we’re reminded every time there’s a blackout, energy helps us get things done and is crucial for our survival. If energy is that important, should it be a commodity that companies sell to us? How can we control our own energy sources to survive and thrive?
Communities, neighborhoods, groups – large and small – need to control energy and decide that energy is for everyone. When we actively participate and collectively decide, that’s energy democracy.
Learn how cooperative energy ownership can
- Enable half of California to build wealth from solar ownership.
- Encourage people to involve their neighbors, building more resilient communities.
- Open the door for people to take collective climate action.
Unlike most energy workshops that focus on the technology, the evening will focus on the organizing, financial, and legal aspects of energy ownership.
