Communities across the United States are taking power into their own hands by organizing, financing, and launching their own local renewable energy projects! In this webinar, energy expert Greg Pahl will described the best practices and lessons learned from the community-owned wind, solar, and biofuel projects featured in his latest book, Power From the People (Chelsea Green, 2012).


Greg Pahl

Greg Pahl is the author of six books on sustainable living, and has written hundreds of articles and commentaries on sustainable living issues, wind power, solar energy, water power, geothermal energy, biomass, biodiesel, electric cars, "green" appliances, home building materials, and sustainable forestry management in publications such as The Vermont Times, Vermont Magazine, Champlain Business Journal, Vermont History, Middlebury College Magazine, and Mother Earth News.

Greg has had a long-time interest in environmental issues in general, and renewable energy in particular. He lived for a number of years "off the grid" in a wood-heated home powered by a wind turbine atop an 80-foot steel tower. Greg lives in Weybridge, Vermont with his wife Joy. For a number of years they heated their home with a biodiesel fuel blend, and more recently with wood pellets. They also have installed a solar domestic hot water system on their garage roof and they drive a hybrid-electric car.
