The Blueskin Wind Turbine initiative and the challenge of establishing community renewables was discussed on RNZ's Nine to Noon programme recently.

There was a good scoping of the challenges of democratizing our electricity sector through community wind in a carbon constrained world. 

Thankfully the Blueskin Energy Network offers the ability to locally "share" solar power, other local renewable generation and everyone’s ability to change how or when they use electricity for the benefit of the community in a smart grid!
