Video-Power To And From The People; Creating An Energy Democracy

Dan Weeks, the Director of Market Development for ReVision Energy discusses the real possibility that our power will go out and how the damage to our planet from climate change is escalating. He explores how a bottom-up movement can radically change how we generate power, creating an energy democracy. Such grassroots organization is interdependent and regenerative.

Dan believes that we can transform the power dynamic by the people and successfully make the transition from fossil fuels to clean energy. Dan Weeks is a Director with ReVision Energy. Dan Weeks raced with the Con Val Solar Car team in high school before leaving to serve with AmeriCorps and study at Yale and Oxford. Now he works as a director at ReVision Energy, a local Benefit Corporation committed to accelerating New England’s clean energy transition. ReVision Energy aims to help people and businesses transition away from fossil fuels to sustainable solar energy.
