John Farrell

In this short interview on KGNU’s science show – How on Earth– with Tom McKinnon, we talk about:

  1. the problems presented for local ownership of energy resources when federal incentives use the tax code,
  2. the trouble for clean energy when it’s reliant on Wall Street,
  3. how Boulder, CO, may accomplish something remarkable with its vote to consider a municipal utility,
  4. the benefits of cash payments or feed-in tariffs for financing renewable energy projects.
