Tks Kirk for the info. I have forwarded this message to my company's chief
lobbyist to see if we can put our corporate name to support this
We have a great lobbyist who served under 4 USA presidents and is personal
friends with the elder President Bush.
By the way our company over the past few months has designed a parabolic
mirror to be manufactured here in USA and will be placed at a large
parabolic mirror farm in AZ or NV. Our automotive windshield plants have
been slowed due to the problems with GM and Ford and the automotive plants
at Guardian have been searching for new biz outside of automotive.
Guardian is also the largest maker of mirrors in the world and our 4 USA
mirror plants are all undercapacity due to so much of the furniture
industry going to China. Well, to make a long story short our S&T Center
developed this new parabolic mirror combining one of our mirror plants and
one of our automotive/laminating plants.
I believe we might be the first USA parabolic mirrror supplier, but don't
quote me on that.
The above is living proof that renewable energy is creating jobs and
opportunities for USA based companies.

Please let your senator and congress person know to support the extension
to the Federal tax credits for solar energy systems.
It will help ensure a cleaner more politically stable future for our kids.
Solar Action Network Alert; Support an Extension of the Federal Solar Tax
The U.S. House and Senate have introduced identical bills to extend the
federal solar investment tax credits created in the Energy Policy Act of
2005 for an additional eight years: through 2015. We are asking you to
contact your congressman to support this legislation.
The title of the legislation is the Securing Americaís Energy
<?xml:namespace prefix = st1 ns =
Act, S. 2677 and H.R. 5206. The extension would provide the solar
incentives for a meaningful period of time to help advance solar
energy<?xml:namespace prefix = o ns =
technologies. This extension would be an important step in leading the
nation toward an appropriate and supportable energy path.
Options for your personal action:
1. SEIA and Renewable Energy Access have set up an easy-to-use webpage
that will let you contact your Senators and Congressman. Click on the link
below to ask your Senators and Representatives to cosponsor this
legislation, or copy and paste the link into your browser.
Please make sure to personalize the letter by adding a paragraph, near the
beginning of the letter, about your company and how these tax credits will
2. Telephone the local offices of your members of Congress.You can find
contact information for them at www.vote-smart.org
3. Use the information below as a template and email or fax a letter to
your Representative and Senators.
The Energy Policy Act of 2005 created a 30% investment tax credit for
residential solar energy technologies and increased the commercial solar
ITC to 30%. Both of these changes are currently set to expire at the end
The Securing Americaís Energy Independence Act will remedy this situation
by extending both the commercial and residential tax credits through 2015.
The bill also makes two changes to the solar credits to enhance their
effectiveness, capping the residential credit at $2,000 per kilowatt (as
opposed to a flat $2,000 cap), and adding an exemption which allows
consumers to take the credits against the alternative minimum tax (AMT).
The bill also extends the fuel cell tax credits through 2015.
ASES, following deliberation by its Policy Committee and Board, encourages
the extension of the tax credit for another eight years. We recommend the
following themes when communicating with your Senators and Representative.
ï The nation needs a bold, dynamic and sustainable energy policy. A
policy that supports and encourages the development and commercialization
of sustainable energy sources like solar, wind, geothermal, biomass and
renewable hydrogen in the near to mid-terms. It must also be a policy that
supports reducing the demand for electricity, heating and cooling energy
and liquid fuels.
ï Congress should continue policies that accelerate our nationís
transition to renewable energy. The Securing Americaís Energy Independence
Act is an important step in leading the nation toward an appropriate and
supportable energy path.
Thank you for letting your voice be heard.
