Power of We

Now, more than ever before, we believe the solutions to the world’s energy and environmental problems lie at the grass roots level – where people and organizations can work together in a climate of mutual responsibility and trust.

We call this the Power-of-We. It’s a simple concept – we are part of a larger system, and if we all recognize this, and participate to the best of our abilities, the system will get better.

We will find ways to tap the assets we have at our fingers, and in the process make cleaner, healthier, more sustainable communities in which to live, work and play.
