From our coffee makers first thing in the morning to the last social media post we see at night, we use electricity in all areas of our lives. But we have almost no control over where our electricity comes from or what it costs.
It doesn’t have to be this way – we can build an Energy Democracy that empowers more than our coffeemakers.
Energy Democracy can help us regain control of our electric system from monopoly and predatory utilities. By embracing Energy Democracy, we can transform our energy system into one that uses cleaner and renewable resources built and owned by local workers and businesses, leading to healthy communities and strong economies. But first, Energy Democracy needs YOU.
