Hi Oriol! Thanks for following up with the idea and checking in. We have our test event coming up in September. Since the inception of this idea, we've had a lot of learnings in terms of coordinating the right people to organize everyone. We are currently doing small get togethers of at least 3 or 4 neighbors. Our event in September brings together a larger group of people and will be a bigger test run. Community power is the biggest factor to enable the rapid transition towards renewable energy adoption. As soon as our group's idea has been implemented, we will update the OpenIdeo platform for sure and you will be the first I contact! Warm Regards! Karen

Hi Nathan! I was going to mention your project in my own idea as a possible collaborative partner to further iterate and explore the motivations that drive this change forward. Of course, no matter the final form of the project, I am determined to identify some key metrics that would show the potential impact of this project as this as far as accelerating the capacity of a suburban areas to transition towards sustainable community. Having your Motivations Interactions Guide could help identify key strategies the community to take if it were interested in organizing an alternative means to generate renewable energy. Solar for every rooftop may not be as desirable as a community solar co-op. I'd be interested in also learning about other real field examples your project tracks to research the progress of current practices.

Monday works much better!
