Universalized across the U.S. and the industrialized world, Community Energy, confederated in regions, could greatly reduce the existential threat of climate change.

 

Bill Resnick talks to Paul Fenn who drafted the legislation now in effect in Massachusetts, Ohio, California, Illinois, New Jersey, New York, Rhode Island, and Virginia. Collectively, they serve about 5% of Americans in over 1300 municipalities. These enactments authorized communities to take over the electricity supply responsibility from the local Investor Owned Utility (IOU).  Bill and Paul also discuss how community energy agencies operate on a day to day basis, and why, though under attack now by the IOUs, they are still expanding because of their many virtues, offering more reliable, less expensive, and greener sun and wind energy to the cities. Universalized across the U.S. and the industrialized world, Community Energy, confederated in regions, could greatly reduce the existential threat of climate change.
