How Electric Companies Intersect with Society and Policy in ‘Utilities 101’
April 27 @ 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm
Our energy options are changing, and new laws are shifting how utilities operate. Join 350 Mass Boston and members of Take Back the Grid (https://www.takebackthegrid.org/) online on Tuesday, April 27 at 7pm to learn the basics about our utilities. Everybody buys electricity for their homes, but few know where it comes from, how it is generated, and how the companies that provide our electricity shape important policy. You’ll hear answers to questions like:
– What is a utility and how is it different from other companies?
– How are our utilities regulated?
– What are ways we can make our utilities more democratically controlled?
– What role do our utilities play in fighting for climate justice?
