The Top Ten 2013 Clean Energy Stories to be Thankful for

The Top Ten Clean Energy Stories to be Thankful for in 2013 list was published by the Sierra Club, in case you were wondering if the the entire planet was being led solely by foolish turkeys instead.  They are:

  1. Wind Power Save Money in Oklahoma
  2. Colorado Doubles its Renewable Energy Standard
  3. Minnesota Passes Comprehensive Clean Energy Legislation
  4. 2013 is a Banner Year for Wind Power in the Midwest
  5. Nebraska To Expand Its Wind Power Industry, as activists urged
  6. Nevada is Moving from Coal Towards Clean Energy
  7. 150,000 Solar Rooftops in California… and counting!!!!
  8. Tea Party and Enviros Unite to Fight for Solar Power in George
  9. New York invests in 380 MW More of Solar Power
  10.   Maryland Makes Off-Shore Wind Power History!

 

So, take pride, gobble some turkey, but then roll up your shirt sleeves, because we’ve got a lot more work to do….

 

Join the swelling numbers of voters TELLING Congress they’ll vote for Clean Energy candidates here: http://signon.org/sign/we-are-the-clean-99?source=c.em.cp&r_by=487176 . This is an ongoing campaign (the next Congressional election is in 2 years!) so please, spread the word. It’s our way of telling Congress that a strong clean energy voting bloc is out there. This is how YOU can make a difference.
