Energy democracy—public participation in policy— is the best way to engage the whole community in our clean energy future. The energy revolution has begun—clean, climate-friendly power from renewable resources is beating fossil fuel on price, reliability, pollution, and greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions. To enable the transition, reform is needed at every level of the energy system. In Peabody, we need education, transparency, citizen participation, and long-range planning.
To save the planet for all life and our grandchildren, we need to organize, protest, and be at the table to plan our local clean energy solutions. Starting with our protests against a new gas and oil-powered electrical generator, we are now engaged with changing laws & regulations and demanding to empower citizens in long-term planning. Progress is won with organization, diligent research, technical knowledge, and creating new partnerships.
