Will the last shot be even digital? Energy as a tool of oppression, even renewable ones.

You can decentralise yourself with renewable energy sources, but you need still allowance from them. And many renewables are anyhow visible. But how to use their narratives for more freedom in physical world. How not to even give them a chance to fire the last shot.

Along with finance, energy is one of the most necessary commodities. And like with finance, it's actually an invisible commodity that few people understand.
It has been a highly centralised commodity since the beginning of the 20th century. And several, especially more totalitarian, regimes use energy to suppress non-compliant communities.
But even in EU countries, which otherwise talk about green and renewable energy, decentralised electricity production has not completely won.
Can renewable energies be used centrally and to reduce freedom? And on the other hand, can RES be used to defend one's independence?
