New Zealand radio station interviews Rachael Belz on green energy victory in Cincinnati

AUCKLAND, NEW ZEALAND May 8 —“The people of Cincinnati, Ohio, have recently begun to take decisions about where their electricity comes from into their own hands. A group called Ohio Citizen Action – the largest environmental and consumer advocacy group in the state – teamed up with Greenpeace to help organise public support for putting a ballot initiative in front of the city’s local authorities. That initiative allowed the City to bargain for electricity on behalf of its residents with the goal of reducing cost and prioritising renewable energy sources. Rachael Belz was one of the key figures behind the campaign – she is the Cincinnati Program director for Ohio Citizen Action – and spoke to Will Pollard from 95bFM.”
