    Dear Annette, In an article entitled “Ambivalence or NIMBY” in the Greenfield Recorder tonight (Thursday, March 6th) Dave Gram of the Associated Press said you are arguing “for a collaborative, community-based process, in which residents of a community or region gather to discuss their energy needs and how to meet them.” YES! Of course! Thank you. There’s a part of me that wants to say “Well, duh!”, but our industrial-sick world corporatocracy has taken over the scene. Big anything is not necessary! Not only is it not necessary, it is inherently off the mark. Solar is great when it’s a few panels in a person’s yard, and there is a farm down here in Hawley (MA) that uses only the electricity it gains from one little bitty, short, unobtrusive, QUIET windmill, like the ones farmers used to use in the olden days. So I conclude that when a society becomes industrialized (corporatized) as ours has become, the concept of pooling resources to help each household/commune/whatever have their own clean resource for energy — that concept is lost. I applaud you and I am grateful for your voice and the voice of Vermonters for a Clean Environment.. Keep up the good work. Very best to you and your colleagues, Prue Berry
