It can build a political movement for climate change by giving average folks some skin in the renewable energy game, and it’s boosting local economies in unexpected places and unexpected ways across America.  That’s why Local Energy Rules.

A project of the Democratic Energy initiative at the Institute for Local Self-Reliance, Local Energy Rules is a twice monthly podcast featuring ILSR Senior Researcher John Farrell, sharing powerful stories of successful local renewable energy and exposing the policy and practical barriers to its expansion.  Our audience is researchers, grassroots organizers, and grasstops policy wonks who want vivid examples of how local renewable energy can power local economies.
