Ursula and Michael Sladek / EWS, Germany
1999 in Los Alamos
For the physician Michael Sladek and his wife Ursula, it was a question of medical ethics after Chernobyl to be committed against nuclear power. After sometimes bitter discussions in the municipal council and after two citizens' decisions had been won, the electricity network concession was awarded to the Elektrizitätswerk Schönau (Schönau electricity plant), which had been founded for this purpose. And this produces sustainable and diverse electricity from renewable energies.
