EarthDay CoOperative

It’s hard to say where and when our town’s People of Faith Cooperative started.

After all,
we have all,
and are still,
emerging people of TaoGod,
right?

Our faith includes defining our still humanizing species
as among those not capable of autonomously regenerating ourselves
into our divine health functions,
or even our more pathological dysfunctions
as a People of Multiculturing Faith.

Even Saint Peter, who was probably no one’s idea of a writer and actor
and co-redeemer
who identified himself as one of the common folk,
and most certainly not in a position to be remembering
TaoGod’s grace somehow includes enslaved women,

Even Elitist Patriarch Peter
cooperatively committed to
“Those formerly enslaved
and raped
and owned
and rented at the will of their owners
with approximate value of the food they eat,
water they drink,
air they breathe,
kids they breed
to become chronically repressed,
not even recognized as a fully human Tribe,
are now the cooperatively creolizing women and men,
including all God’s “Bless His Heart” liberties
and proclivities
and frivolities,
and robust, resonant thriving cooperativities,
bound only by our Golden Rule
as the becoming people of regenerative/degenerative TaoGod.

Well, OK, so I threw in a little extra stardust
that St. Peter didn’t explicitly say,
but would it be fake news that these transliterations
may be implied?

And further economized,
quite ecologically,
and cooperatively WinWin Game Theoretic robust,
as always pay Yes forward
unless you have LeftBrain historical proof
that this Other,
also of TaoGod/dess Earth,
defines cooperatively active love
as more for autonomous Ego Identities,
than for Cooperative RightBrain HolySpirit-EcoFlow Optimization,
WinLeft/WinRight Cooperative
(0)-sum Ecologically Reiterative-Dialectal Economics.

Anyway,
another way to begin this energetic cooperative story
was when I decided
not only could I not afford
to not put a solar panel system on my house,
but my neighbors and my town also could not afford
for me to continue consuming from 88% nonrenewable fuel-produced electricity,
when I could switch to producing 100% radiant solar-rooted electricity
for my family,
and a surplus to flow back
to our town’s cooperatively owned grid.

Or, you know,
something like that.

So, if I could do this,
only pay for about half of the system myself
(so, about $10,000,
while relying on the generosity of our combined tax revenues
for the other nearly half)
and also get a 0-interest loan,
with a 10 year repayment calendar,
and in return eliminate my electric bill
and my water bill,
because water and gas and sewer service, like electricity
are owned by my town’s cooperative utility corporation,
then why wouldn’t everyone,
especially TaoGod’s no longer enslaved
and owned and rented people
having chronic issues
with affording to stay in regenerative homes,
with potential capacity to produce solar-cycled electricity,
and, if oversized,
but not overpriced,
also have a cooperatively intended interest
in collecting less bills
they cannot afford to pay.

So, the originators of our town’s People of Faith Cooperative
began with those “Bless Their Heart” properties
defining why our Utility Cooperative
was budgeting over 2 million dollars
in bad debt
each year.

And, as you might suspect,
the large majority of this incapacity to produce cash
came from a handful of repeat offenders.

And, many of our People of Creolizing Faith Cooperative originators
just happened to live in some of these under-performing properties,
or had,
or knew somebody who did.

For every owner of these problem child properties
who installed a solar,
and then, later on, solar and wind-turbine system,
the Coop received $200.
$100 of which went back to the coop member
who brought this deal to contract,
to buy groceries
or maybe a cell phone
allowing internet access
through their cooperative membership.

So everybody’s happy.
The Utility Cooperative is decreasing bad debt trends
and increasing clean energy percentages
and increasing indigenous production percentages,
so we can trend toward becoming a producer town,
that is a NewEngland positive extra energy town
more than a degenerative negative-loss consumer.

We further suspect and actively hope,
that as the towns around us follow suit,
not just trump,
then this cooperative of clean energy producers
will help NewEngland become a net clean energy producer,
and so on.
Sort of like thinking global systemically,
but also local economically,
including personally,
and then acting cooperatively
from ego-center within toward eco-centering without,
from YinRight toward YangLeft
nondually co-arising our People of MultiCulturing Cooperative.

Also a winner on this growing list,
People of Faith now also harvest humanure,
modeled on soil therapy programs
already well-established in Japan,
which allows us to plant and care for
a growing urban forest
of fruit and nut and fig trees,
and berry bushes (no thorns, kid and family friendly)
and various beds of rhubarb and asparagus
and perennial onions,
and so on,
including strawberry fields forever,
which these same People of Faith
forage and graze on
as they wander around downtown,
now partially closed to auto traffic,
facilitated by the cooperative bike-share project,
which was funded through profits
from the Cooperative’s recycling solar panel industry
and solar-wind hybrid installation services.

And, the town government gets 10% of net
from the Utility Cooperative,
so that has gone up a bit,
as bad debt goes down,
and now we can afford to pay cooperative producers
of electricity at almost our retail rate,
so the People of Faith Cooperative
has been saving some of this income
to help cooperative members
buy the solar-heated buildings
they have been renting,
as cooperative landlords and ladies age
and decide to move elsewhere,
although the list of reasons for relocation
continue to fade away
as we slow down
to smell our well-composted forest
we have cooperatively become.
