Bürger Energie Berlin is a free, cross-party, civil union that is committed to establishing a viable, sustainable, and democratic energy policy in Berlin. In their energy cooperative every member has an equal vote, regardless of their investment.
How? By accumulating as much money as needed, through large and small investments, the cooperative sets out to buy the power grid when it is up for sale in 2015, and become the operator. Besides money, they also bring civic participation to the city, creating an attractive model for Berlin.
Whoever wants to help get the power supply in the hands of citizens is welcome to join.
