Windspire will be featured on a special episode of ABC's "20/20" on June 19th at 10/9C. The episode highlights the impact the new Windspire manufacturing facility is having in Michigan by putting ex-autoworkers back to work.
I am a WTWEC member and from Dallas, TX. I have a request for you. Can you please send out an email to the WTWEC members and let them know about the TX Senator Cornyn Call Campaign Event on Tuesday, Jan 20th. They can call anytime during the day.
I would appreciate it a lot.
Please email me back and let me know what you decide.

Happy New Year Alanna,
Last year I helped so many members of Pickens Plan learn about personal home energy plans. It's all about conservation of power, and home power generation, things I have been doing at my residence to lower my electricity costs. Send me a friend request a to add me Alanna, I'd be honored to have you as a friend here.
BTW, Texas: I just posted an article link on my pickens page about Home Wind Systems in Texas. Your state's representatives, governor, and public utility commission officials are not in your corner with this "weak policy" on Net Metering. Instead they have the tables turned against green power for businesses and homeowners. Texas has created multiple sets of rules for loopholes and you have less rights than people in other states. You should read that article, important.
You must be thrilled with the work you do for West Texas Wind Energy and with Greg Wortham. My name is RoseMarie LaCoursiere, relatively new to PickensPlan yet highly active in generating momentum among members.
When you have a moment, please review my page and do not hesitate to ask if you believe I can be of support to West Texas Wind Energy initiatives.
Several individual members of the PickensPlan have advanced the idea of a "petition drive" - i.e., have downloadable/printable petitions, then seek individuals to sign them outside stores, in non-governmental offices, at colleges, county and state fairs, outside sporting events, etc. A brief "handout" on the PickensPlan could also be given, or "business cards" or "stickers" - at the same time. All of the petitions would then be gathered and delivered en masse to Congress.
I believe this is a very good idea, in that it is: (a) proactive; (b) results in tangible evidence (boxes and boxes of signed petitions) that might influence Congress; (c) could lead to a surge of members of the PickensPlan (imagine the handout containing instructions for signing up as a member); and (d) provides a real sense of accomplishment to the members who are participating.
Will the PickensPlan support this idea, if not immediately then by scheduling it for a later "Call to Action"? Thank you for your consideration.
