Boone Pickens says we send 700 Billion Dollars every year to other countries to buy oil.
We’ve put together a petition and would appreciate it if you would go take a look at it
Sign our PETITION to tell President Obama and Congress to establish Federal Private Citizen net metering regulations.
Currently the regulations that guide utility companies in allowing customers to interconnect their private alternative energy systems with the grid are established by the individual states, they are erratic across our country with some states being generous in requiring utilities to allow interconnectivity and in other states the requirement does not exist.
The federal government has established generous tax incentives to foster alternative energy growth, but those incentives will not be effective in an area where the utility is not required to allow interconnectivity. A federal regulation requiring utilities to allow a minimum of 5% of households to interconnect to the grid should be established.
The regulation should also require utilities to pay for any excess power produced by these customer alternative energy systems at the current wholesale rate, which would be a further incentive for private citizens to have these systems installed.
Such regulations would encourage additional job growth in both the installation and manufacturing fields across our country.
I’ve also created a redirect so it’s easier to remember, write down and pass around. www.pacificsunlight.net I know the name doesn’t match but it’s a domain I was not using so I decided to put it to good use. Please spread the word.
I am one of the welcome wagon crew. We are all volunteers. Out of sheer numbers I greet daily I have a paste and copy note.
It is not intended to overwhelm you, just give you a direction and some contacts. I do read every profile page.
We are a voluntary community of individuals who are placing our combined support behind T. Boone Pickens and his efforts to send our government a clear (heard) message that we must reduce our nation’s dependence on foreign oil through the use of all domestic energy alternatives. This site is a place to interact with fellow Pickens Plan supporters, keep up with events and opportunities to help get more involvement.
*************Please, I ask the first sites you visit to get accurate info and articles to see pretty much what the plan is about and where the plan stands, and please come back to these sites often as changes take place regularly. Some are long, please; take the time to get all the details.

There is a group for almost everything. The Forums/discussions on this site are many and you’ll probably find something that interests or concerns you. Some are very long and were started months ago.

After you have read the sites I mentioned, if you need anything else to help you, while you help the push, please stop by. I am proud to put my efforts towards this cause. Again, Welcome; Tom
