Happy New Year Alyssa,
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 Alyssa, 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.
TX-26 district has been organizing our group through the month of Dec. I see you have not been attached to a congressional district. We invite you to join district-26.
We have members from Denton, Tarrant, Dallas and Collin counties. Also, any other member not from the area is still invited for info and organization.
Regards, Joey Horn
P.S. I see you are a member of the consortuim. Have you met Greg, its leader, her is great.
We are now over 1.2 million suporters. We will need many more if we are to beat back the damn lobbyists and special interests. Can you help with the pledges? Every American needs to sign on. With pledges we can fan out and reach so many. It is an easy ask- Boone has done the hard work. I was able to get 300 signed in the first 4 days - everyone wants to to get off of foreign oil. We may never have a golden opportunity like this again!
ARE YOU IN?
I know that we are friends, and you get email updates from me, however, I think this is so important, I am reaching out one at a time.
I am looking for members of the 100CLUB... members that have faxed in 100 or more signed pledges.
We have the mechanism to build our numbers, we need to use it. It is the easiest ask- Boone has done the hard work. All we need to do is hitch our wagon to his horse and plow to the finish. I have sent in 240 so far.
It comes down to.... Do we have the fortitude? I hope so. We aren't asking folks to take up arms. But this IS our revolution. And we have a very small window to get it done. I would like your help.
I am also waiting for tools to help us define our efforts :
1. the list of who has signed the PLEDGE and who has NOT- Governors and Legislators.
2. counter/tickers on the site of how many emails have been sent to Congress.
3. counter/ticker of how many PLEDGES have been signed by citizens.
We now have a RED "CONTACT CONGRESS" BUTTON on the main page, top right. Fill out the standard form and the letter is sent to YOUR Governor and Washington Representatives! Easy breezy. Perfect timing considering the energy bill is coming up. We must beat back the lobbyists!
Please take a look at the executive summary on my page. We are in the process of establishing a nonprofit innovation laboratory in Houston Texas dedicated to inspiring young people to pursue technology careers and to the development of the next-generation of strategic technologies to meet our current global challenges. Alternative energy is a major focus of our program.
Right now, we are in need of people willing to sponsor our efforts or to finding sponsorship for us.
We believe this can be the beginning of an effort that can spread to other areas of the country and create a critical mass of new technology ideas and innovative technologists to meet the challenges.
Any assistance you could provide would be appreciated.
