Our letter to the editor got printed in the Anchorage Daily News today - let the conversation begin!
In her June 2 column on SB 21, Shannyn Moore asked the right question: Do we really want to guarantee that the state will have to search for other sources of revenue?

Sun and wind energy is available everywhere and it can be generated most cost-effectively and efficiently at the point of use. Power for the people should include the right to PRODUCE and OWN your own (or your community) solar, wind or other forms of renewable energy. Be aware that Chevron, BP and other Big Energy Monopolists are moving in to control "renewable energy" through massive, remote centralized solar and wind development (usually on our public lands) that are no more sustainable than big oil. The 99.99% needs to push for Ontario or German style feed-in tariffs (FIT's), restoration of Property Assessed Clean Energy (PACE), Community Power Development Funds and other policies that promote locally generated and owned renewable energy. We also need to understand how far the All Too Powerful Energy Monopoly will go to keep us from controlling our energy future.
