This week we speak with Juan Martinez about the Monterey Bay Community Power project. This project looks to give local consumers the option to choose renewable energy to provide their electricity needs. This was not a simple matter and required the work of many in local government, community groups, and the input of community members to make this project a reality. This project could allow the reinvestment of profits earned to be put back into the project to allow the building of more renewable energy projects, thereby reducing our reliance on fossil fuels. Juan has been a long time activist in our area and was kind enough to come on the show and tell us how he and others from the Romero Institute are involved in making this project a reality.
