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:
I don't have any but my husband and I live on 15 acres and we have wind most of the time because we live in farm country. I want to get a windmill for our power and possibly solar power but don't know where to start.
What excites you about this campaign?
I have been an environmentalist since my teenage years in the 70's. I have always tried to recycle, conserve energy and water and not litter. I am excited about getting our country on board and getting it done!
What do you want to do to help?
I am a business owner that runs a real estate business and helps my husband run his remodeling business. I am very busy but I would like to do something I just don't know what.

Hello Kandice, These new rooftop mount home wind turbine kits that I am building are great. The profile is pretty sleek and attractive. The system is actually a home appliance and doesn't really stand out much more than an antennae, chimney, or satellite dish. This makes a nice clean way for homeowners to get into the clean energy movement. The systems are inexpensive, easy to install and scaleable.
These systems have wind/solar built right in. The wind is stronger in the winter months, sun is stronger in the summer months, we designed a system that is attractively priced, that gives an even flow of energy year round. Wind power scales down in size to be perfectly feasible for a homeowner sized system to provide power for their home. Many customers have found it easy to become wind turbine customer/dealers. They are able to do this with no further investment and they see how easy people are to get interested.
I have used them to save money on my electricity costs and Kandice, you could too. The systems pay for themselves in 5 to 10 years depending on your local wind resources, and they last for 25 or 30 years before needing a rebuild. Have a look at these windmaps and see can you pinpoint what number your area is in. 2 is OK and anything over 2 is very good. Let's double check your wind resources are good.
NEW MEMBERS: Thanks for joining...Please do one good deed today before you have a chance to forget or get busy with other things! Pickens can't singlehandedly solve the problem of the $700B outflow to pay for foreign oil, much of which money ends up in unfriendly hands. That is why he is asking each member to sign up 5 others members on the Pickens Plan. Surely you know at least five other people that would support a real plan to reduce our dependence on foreign oil NOW... please take this to heart; the survival of our leadership position in the world and our economic prosperity at home is at stake – please contact your friends, family, neighbors and our legislators today.
PS. If Pickens succeeds all forms of alternative energy will benefit from this movement. He has a workable, achievable plan. All viable AE solutions will get a huge boost if the Plan can reach 1M members in 2008.
United we can / Undecided we fail. Please add me as a friend!
Here is an informative video "Topeka, Kansas Town Hall Meeting with Boone" :
Here is Boone's appearrance on Larry King Live:
If you know someone in the press- get them to cover this.
If you know someone who blogs- get them to cover this.
If you can write to a Congressman/woman- get them to understand this.
If you know someone who is in the public eye- ask them to support this.
