Boulder, we have a friend in Xcel’s hometown of Minneapolis, MN.
John Farrell of the Institute of Local Self Reliance has been educating communities for years on the economic benefits of self governance for essentials like energy, banking and waste management. Needless to say he took careful note when Minneapolis looked into municipalization, which did not pass just a few years ago. Today he says: “If I had the chance to go to the polls tomorrow and give Minneapolis the opportunity to take over, I would do it.” See his whole message for Boulder at the link below.
John Farrell has been teaching that “communities have to take control of their energy future, regardless of whether the federal government is a clean energy friend or foe.”
