    All,

    I got this e-mail from Lisa Trope about the Sierra Club's meeting. I'm sorry for the late notice as I -just- got this e-mail. Come if you can.

    -W

    All,

    I am currently working with the Sierra Club on getting more solar energy into Texas. As some of you know, way back in '05 and again in '07 Texas passed laws mandating increased use of Geothermal and Solar energy. Needless to say, the PUC (Public Utilities Commission) is dragging their feet.

    Remember those Blackouts and warnings from ERCOT (Electrical Reliability Council of Texas), these types of energy -if implemented- would have prevented those blackouts and warnings.

    I am asking that as many people as possible sign the Sierra Club's petition that is going to the PUC. Middle of October is our deadline. If we get this done it would mean more energy for all. Not to mention creating over 21000 jobs in Texas.

    Link to the petition:

    Thanks,
    -W

    Thanks - this has been a huge frustration of mine since moving to Texas.

    It's like I stepped thirty years into the past. I could live with that if it was reflected in the mirror.
