Is our energy grid a sleeping giant of collective ownership? https://www.thenation.com/article/economic-democracy-and-the-billion-dollar-co-op/
@ntnsndr Fantastic article, Nathan! A few years back I got Avram Patt to tell the story of how a group of #Vermont back-to-the-lander hippies took over the board of the Washington (county) #ElectricCoop in the 1980s and 90s and set it on the path to become the first 100% #renewable utility in the country. It was an intense scrap for a few year, and the results are pretty inspiring...
social.coop is a cooperatively-run corner of the Fediverse. The instance is democratically governed by its members, who generally share an interest in the co-op model, but topics of discussion range widely.
Our instance is supported by sliding scale contributions of $1-10/mo made via Open Collective. You must have an active Open Collective account to apply for membership; you may set one up here
