Can electricity be produced locally where it can be controlled by local communities? Yes, claims Judy Barnes of Oregonians For Renewable Energy Policy in this conversation with Bill Resnick.

Barnes will be speaking at a Community Forum on Building a Green Oregon, Saturday, January 16 and the First Unitarian Church, SW 12th and Salmon, starting at 10 am.
