The Solar Guerrilla Manifesto 01.20.06


Robbie Harris

Renewable energy advocates pledge to install renewable energy sources into the power grids, even if they are not given permission by the utilities.

The manifesto appeared in Home Power magazine, where it was attributed to an anonymous source. It reads:

"We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all energy is freely and democratically provided by Nature, that utilities both public and private have no monopoly on the production and distribution of energy, that this century's monopolization of energy by utilities threatens the health of our environment and the very life of our planet. We, the Solar Guerrillas of this planet, therefore resolve to place energy made from sunshine, wind, and falling water on this planet's utility grids with or without permission from utilities or governments. We resolve to share this energy with our neighbors without regard for financial compensation. We further resolve that our renewable energy systems will be safe and will not harm utility workers, our neighbors, or our environment.

Signed, Solar Guerrillas of Planet Earth."

The movement eventually spread nationwide through word-of-mouth in the renewable energy community, although the exact number of Solar Guerrillas is hard to determine and their founders remain anonymous.
