I spent three days last fall with some of the biggest minds behind the “new economy” movement, noting how their core theme – economic democracy – is hand in hand with ILSR’s work on democratic energy.

The big takeaway? Solar power is the spark to energize a new energy economy from the bottom up.

This new solar-sparked electricity system will look very different from the old energy economy, because the technology to meet the energy needs of the 20th century is fundamentally different from those needed to meet the needs of the 21st century.
