" The question remains as to why this device has not been universally adopted? The only reason that I can determine is one outside of my area of expertise: Politics. I lack an understanding of the complicated interactions of utility companies, Public Service Commissions, and the legislative, executive, and judicial branches of government in this regard.

Mark Danner here Crescent City. I am interested to here more about those projects. I am very interested in doing some co-op projects up here. I am starting Sun Wind Solar Systems up in Crescent City. We are partnered with the Mariha Company and they are making the Windspire vertical wind turbine. We installed one 2 months ago. My email is firstname.lastname@example.org. Looking forward to further communications. Mark
We have recently signed up with the plan. We are located in the Santa Clarita Valley close to Los Angeles County and would like to know who may be the leader for this district.
If possible could you help us out please.

Free Alternative Energy Available Now !
America Continues to Waste over 70% of the Energy it Consumes.
100's of millions of lights unnecessarily burn during the day and night, over heating and over cooling is the norm, over packaging, inadequate recycling, toxic landfills, horrendous road congestion, and our perverted obsession with road construction. Public and Private buildings, Schools, Churches, Homes, ... America's blatant energy waste and overuse is culturally pervasive, and abominable !
1- ONLY with a substantial and tangible economic reward/consequence will most Americans care to conserve.
Crude oil must be taxed at $200 per barrel and offset by making income tax begin at $60k.
Taxing energy is simple, fair, economically sound, and available TODAY.
2- The American auto industry must quickly transition to the 6.4 BILLION people reason$ to manufacture solar, wind, and other alternative energy producers. They already have the needed infrastructure. Every home and building in the world, could be using solar energy. We are fast running out of fossil fuels !
Humanity is racing toward extinction, via global warming, for our failure to stop our energy waste.
Taxing energy (in lieu of income taxes) is the ONLY incentive that will stop energy waste and cause renewable energy sources to be employed.

Ed, it looks like we have Russian gas coming into our country, first, russia is not our ally, second, our domestic natural gas industry is being dis-mantled as we speak. Do you have any influence in your part of CA?

Gazprom gets major deal to supply gas to U.S.
April 9, 2009, 6:32AM
MOSCOW — The world’s largest natural gas company, Russia’s Gazprom, has after years of attempts finally
gotten a foothold in the U.S., the world’s biggest gas market.
A supply agreement, part of a multipart contract reached with Royal Dutch Shell, was announced late Wednesday.
The contract, signed in Moscow by Gazprom CEO Alexei Miller and his Shell counterpart Jeroen Van der Veer,
guarantees the two companies will deliver 1 million tons of Russian liquefied natural gas annually until 2028.
Under the arrangement, Gazprom gets access to a Shell terminal in Baja California, Mexico, that will turn Russian
liquefied gas into gas that can be sent through pipelines to the United States. The LNG will be shipped from
Sakhalin Island in the Pacific.
In return, Shell gets an equivalent amount of regular pipeline gas for distribution in Europe, a statement by the
Analysts noted that the U.S. market isn’t as lucrative as Europe, since U.S. natural gas prices are lower and
there’s more competition.
But the deal is still significant because Gazprom has tried for years to get a slice of the U.S. market; until now,
most of Gazprom’s gas supplies to the United States have been swap deals with other companies.
Gazprom has developed Sakhalin’s huge, difficult-to-access gas fields with an eye toward Japan and Western
markets. Officials recently celebrated the opening of Russia’s first LNG plant on Sakhalin — a major leap forward
for Russia’s efforts to be a player in the growing world market for LNG.
Japan — which will be the largest importer of gas from the Sakhalin projects — last month received the first tanker
shipments from the plant, which is expected to produce about 4.5 million tons this year.
I recently sent you a proposal for a wind energy project near Ferndale, in Humboldt county. I think this proposal is the kind of idea you and Richard have been writing about. Getting a project started in Ferndale would help promote wind energy in other nearby areas of Humboldt county.
I just sent you and other members of the group a message. I hope you are interested in my idea. Your enthusiasm about wind energy was one of the reasons I looked into the community wind energy business.
