Tired of the daily news about another fat cat stockholder in an energy company ripping the public off? Want to know how towns and cities can better harness their own energy and take back local control of electrical power? Wonder what solar and renewables can contribute to solving the "energy crisis?" Come join the Northern California Solar Energy Association and the Ecology Center as we present P O W E R F O R T H E P E O P L E: A forum on public power, solar power and community control of energy Speakers will include: *Paul Fenn, Director of Local Power and publisher of American Local Power News. Mr. Fenn authored the voter-approved San Francisco Prop H, the 2001 renewable energy and efficiency revenue bond authority, and an accompanying plan to build the world's largest urban solar utility . Before that he authored the nation's first state laws, in Massachusetts and Ohio, allowing communities to choose an alternative energy provider through a city council-administered competitive bidding process ("Community Choice"). *Cynthia Wooten - Bay Area energy issues activist, solar and renewables advocate and founder of East Bay Power. Ms Wooten has initiated the move in the East Bay towards our local municipal utilities district providing electricity rather than PG&E. Ms. Wooten is a former Oregon State Legislator. *Eugene Coyle, Energy Economist. Mr. Coyle lectures widely and has made numerous radio and television appearances. He has taught at colleges and universities and has testified on energy issues before government agencies in the US, Brazil, Australia and France. Cost: $5 - $15, sliding scale, no one turned away for lack of funds. NCSEA or Ecology Center members: $5.
