Are you interested in becoming an organizer in your area?
Maybe--But Not Sure What to Organize
Tell us about your experience with alternative energy:
2 years' experience as Material Control Purchasing Manager for Clipper Windpower, providing spare parts/repair parts for our fleet of 2.5MW Liberty turbines. As such I have considerable knowledge of the components and inner workings of these machines. Also looking into installing a wind turbine on our personal property.
What excites you about this campaign?
Somehow we need to convince Congress that wind power is critical to our energy future. The Europeans get it, why don't we? Maybe because they are paying $10.00 for a gallon of gas, maybe because their governments are more progressive than ours. This administration is a lost cause but fortunately both current candidates are more open to change. High visibility campaigns such as Mr. Pickens' are needed to convince Congress, and the general public, of the urgency of this issue.
What do you want to do to help?
Anything I can- please provide direction!

I've just started getting involved in a non-profit website (http://www.windturbines.net/) solely focused on wind turbines and how they can help. We've a social network for wind turbine enthusiasts and a directory where businesses connected in wind energy can post their business info and site.
If you have any advice on how to spread the word out about our site, it would be a great help.

I want to get a Haynesville "street team" going to get the film into
communities across the country via house parties and community
screenings. The movie is a great way to educate people as to the
potential of natural gas as a clean, domestic energy source/fuel. So
many people said they were not good at community outreach because they
didn't know what to say. Well, this film does the talking for you!!!
It is an independently produced film which means it is a grassroots
film for a grassroots organization! I'd like all State and District
Leaders to get a copy. We have all worked very hard on this movement
and I think this film will make our job even easier. Please tell your
friends on and off the web about the film via your blog or website and
please get your own copy of the DVD to show to people in your area
such as your friends and family, schools, churches, business groups,
I'm now in Apple Valley formerly from La Crescenta in the Gledale area.

Hope you and some of you people will call in. See you Wednesday. Thanks for all that you do.
Hi Bob! I wanted to reply to the message you sent me. I think a great way to motivate people about the Pickens Plan right now is by letting them know that AT&T recently pledged to covert 8,000 of their fleet vehicles to domestic natural gas! This is HUGE, and it demonstrates how the PIckens Plan can work by reducing our dependence on foreign oil and by creating jobs here at home!
I live near Waterloo, IA. I have 7 acres and I'm thinking about putting up a 10kw wind generator. Any sugeestions? Brand, company, any info will be helpful. I realize you work with the much larger systems. There's so much info out there on the web, I'm hoping you can start me down the right path.
Waterloo area Pickens Planners are welcome to attend a town gathering. This unique chance to experience a NEV vehicle will start with a 15-minute video, "Journey to the ZONE".

Have you attended the Iowa Energy Fair or the Illinois in Oregon?
Better yet, have you attended the Midwest Renewable Energy Fair in Custer, Wisconsin? The attendance was over 22,000!
Keep up the good work with wind. Our group, HOPE3 (Hybrid Owners Preserving Energy Efficient Economy) visited the McNeilus Wind Farm in Dodge Center, Minnesota for Earth Day. What a great opportunity to get into a 1.65 MW! A 2.5 MW seems awesome.
Thanks for your work,
