Ask yourself this: why do we still have an energy system that’s contributing to climate change, polluting our water and making a few people obscenely rich while the electric bills of the poor and middle class keep rising?
We all know the answer, right? It’s because power-hungry monopolies control the system with help from laws and regulations that were designed by and for those same monopolies.
Energy Democracy is about working together to create a new energy system that generates wealth and opportunity in communities where clean energy is consumed, rather than devastation in communities where dirty power is produced.
There’s no blueprint for energy democracy, and that’s kind of the point — it’s something that we can create together; a system designed by and for us!
But like all kinds of democracy, it only works when we participate.
