Greg Pahl on how communities can organize & launch community-scale renewable energy projects
POWER FROM THE PEOPLE: How to Organize, Finance and Launch Local Energy Projects - author Greg Pahl
More than ninety percent of the electricity we use to light our communities, and nearly all the energy we use to run our cars, heat our homes and power our factories, comes from large, centralized, highly polluting nonrenewable sources. On this episode of Locus Focus, we find out how it doesn't have to be that way. We will talk with energy expert Greg Pahl, whose new book Power from the People details how communities can empower themselves to prepare for the emerging energy crisis by launching their own community-scale, renewable energy projects that harvest energy from the sun, wind, water and earth.
