thanks for your help. here are the websites to find contact info to your MOCs.
here is a sample draft LTE:
"It is time for America to break our dependence on foreign oil which accounts for 70% of our oil supply and start creating American jobs by developing alternative energy plans and tapping domestic energy sources.
As he outlined at last week's Wind Power 2009 Conference & Exhibition in Chicago and countless TV commercials, Boone Pickens has a plan to help the United States become a worldwide supplier of alternative energy by tapping domestic sources such as wind, solar and natural gas.
We need Congress to stand up to the status quo and foster alternative domestic energy sources that advance our economic, environmental and national security interests. Congress has an opportunity to do just that by enacting pending legislation that would develop a renewable energy standard and require the federal government to start buying alternative energy vehicles. I hope they are up to the Pickens challenge!"
Thanks for sharing your RE experience with me and the Pickens team. My renewable energy story is much like the famed "cobbler who's children have no shoes." I sell and install systems for everyone else except myself - but not for too long. I do log all the power in my home, which helps me determine waste. Conservation is the first step towards being independently green. After I've fined tuned the home to use less, then I'll put on a new roof with some solar panels.
Willard- we do need cars that run on this way before we can start selling it.. right? Also you might want to contact a propane company and talk to them about the weight and thickness of any container that would hold this gas.
