“Co-Ops and Local Ownership”
Seattle Renewable Energy Meet-up Group, Thursday, Oct 28th, 7-9 pm
Meet the folks from the Northwest Coop Development Center www.nwcdc.coop and learn how forming co-ops is a proven strategy to help people access economic resources that meet their needs. In today’s recession economy, there is a renewed interest in local ownership and right-sized businesses with strong community accountability.
NWCDC is devoted to assisting new and existing cooperative businesses in Washington, Oregon, Idaho, and Hawaii. Renewable-resource co-ops on their client list include the Last Mile Electric Co-op, Olympia BioFuels, and Our Wind Co-op. The “cooperative business model” also works for service and manufacturing businesses. Please plan to attend and get the details on renewable energy co-ops.
