Contributions Are Matched Up To $25,000!
If you’re reading this, you are probably a big supporter of a democratic energy future. We appreciate it!
We’ve been grateful to be at the center of the struggle for a new community-centered energy economy, illuminating a path forward by widely sharing this vision, performing in-depth research, identifying working models, and arming activists and legislators with innovative policies and vivid illustrations.
For the GiveMN Give to the Max day 2014, we have a remarkable opportunity to expand our funding for our democratic energy program. The 11th Hour Project has generously offered to give ILSR a $25,000 challenge grant if we can raise an additional $25,000 from other sources – like you! That’s $50,000 on the table for ILSR’s energy program!
Your support, doubled by this matching grant, will help us continue our cutting edge work including:
- Challenging a paradigm of centralized utility control of the energy system by bringing democratic energy into the conversation about the 21st century electric utility (“Utility 2.0”).
- Highlighting the opportunity “microgrids” are offering communities to control their energy use and energy future.
- Identifying the most promising models for community and cooperative ownership of energy resources.
