There is a big revolution going on in “the sharing economy”. From energy to insurance, people are taking charge and working together to share the costs of alternative energy methods and collaborating to become energy independent. In this short documentary, witness a revolutionary answer to the world of multinationals. After the industrial and the digital revolution, we are now in the middle of an energy revolution. More and more people are installing solar panels on their roofs or banding together to build wind farms. In the process, they are becoming less dependent on major energy suppliers.

The Ottawa Renewable Energy Co-operative (OREC) and SMARTNet Alliance are partnering to bring you a SMARTinsights event, featuring the Canadian premiere of the Dutch documentary “Power to the People”. This event will also include a discussion on the opportunities and challenges facing community-owned power.
