Energy Democracy Workshops

We turned up the heat on national fuel. In 2013 we won a victory. We won million$$$ that was paid back to customers. The fight’s not over!!! Now utility companies are trying to stop us from using energy that we can produce in our communities like solar energy!!! We went into different communities in Buffalo to spread the word through a series of workshops.
