DSA Night School: Public Ownership
Dec 18, 2019

Democratic Socialist Night School: Public Ownership, Democratic Governance of Utilities, and Bernie Sanders’ Green New Deal.

The international corporation Suez and the city of Eagle are trying to purchase Eagle Water Co. Customers would see higher costs if Suez is successful.

Idaho Power, a publicly traded company, negotiated a settlement behind closed doors with the city of Boise and several environmental groups to reduce the credit to customers for their excess solar power. This could disincentivize customers from installing new solar panels.

Join Boise DSA for a brief lecture and discussion on the case for public ownership of utilities in order to deepen democracy while addressing climate change, and what Bernie wants to do about it.

When: January 29, 2020 @ 6:30 - 8 PM

Where: Eagle Public Library, Conference Room, 660 E Civic Lane, Eagle
