25 Examples of How Your Community Can Generate Local Energy

Yesterday the Post Carbon Institute published a new book, showcasing over 25 real-life examples of local energy projects.

Power From the People is the second book in their Community Resilience Guides series. It illustrates how communities across the country are already generating their own energy at the local level: from citizen-owned wind turbines to co-op biofuel producers to community-wide initiatives combining multiple resources and technologies. Author Greg Pahl outlines the steps necessary and plan, organize, finance and launch community energy projects, offering a range of challenges and solutions that can be adapted and reapplied.

It’s been said that we must leave fossil fuels before they leave us. Power From the People shows how that can be done.
