Powering A New Economy: Reclaiming Rural Electric Co-operatives

By Jake Schlacter, Founder – We Own It.

Today, the need to empower people left out of our investor-owned economy is greater than ever before, and co-ops are once again the engine of change. Electric co-ops, in whole or in part, serve over 90 percent of the poorest U.S. counties, making co-ops key to both energy democracy as well as creating an economy that works for all.
