      Russel made an excellent presentation yesterday at the HREG meeting.
      Very informative and motivational, let me touch a few highlights...
       
      How each one of us can support Renewable Energy: 
      1) Buy "green" electric power.
      2) Put a Solar Water heater system on your home.
      3) Put a Solar PV system on your home.
      4) If building a new home, make it energy efficient.
      5) Buy a "flex-fuel" vehicle.
      6) Ask your state Representatives to continue the expansion of the "Renewable Energy Portfolio" from 5 MW to 10 MW.
       
      The best way to educate people about renewable energy is to hit their pocket book - money motivates, money talks.  (Note the above list speaks $ to energy providers.)
       
      Texas has the biggest potential for solar, biomass and wind renewable energy (North Dakota has more wind potential, but Texas has more marketable wind potential.)
       
      Houston has a big potential for the renewable energy industry and there are probably 100 RE companies already here.  There are many exciting things going on... keep tuned in...
       
      Many Thanks to you Russel, keep up the good work!!!

        Here are minutes for the rest of the meeting courtesy of Joyce Lattimore, secretary/treasurer:

         

        Meeting was called to order by Vice-President Chris Boyer

         

        John Gardner, TXSES Representative, announced the Cool Houston Home Tour on May 21st and The Renewable Energy Roundup and Green Living, in Fredericksburg, TX, September 22nd – 24th.

         

        Introductions and remarks by the attendees (16)

         

        Mike Ewert, President, expressed gratitude for the members who represented HREG Earth Day events:  Woodlands, United Space Alliance and Bellaire.

         

        Special Guest Speaker, Russel Smith, Executive Director, Texas Renewable Energy Industry Association, Austin, Texas, issued a challenge – “Don’t Just Stand There – Do Something”, and gave a very informative talk on what individuals can do to make the environment better for now and later generations.  Some of these include buying electricity from green power sources, install a solar water heating system, install a photovoltaic system, design home to maximize energy efficiency and use florescent lighting.

         

         Next meeting is July 30th.

        And a couple of other things I noted from Russel’s talk:

        Things are very much like in 1976 for renewable energy, except that we have learned much.  Russel felt this was the 3rd wave and the one that will stick.  For renewables to be mainstream, we must engage the existing energy industry.  TREIA has.  Besides solar and wind, Texas has great potential for geothermal, biomass electricity and bio-fuels.

          Have you tested your impact on the climate, your carbon footprint?   www.bp.com/carbonfootprint  

          It's easy to lighten and then eliminate your footprint.  Energy efficiency is good for us and good for the climate, says Houston Climate Protection Alliance www.HoustonClimateProtection.org    You can buy clean electricity from several companies www.HoustonConsumerChoice.com.   To test how clean they are http://www.powerscorecard.org/

          Eliminate your footprint by helping others save energy or buying renewable energy credits.  Each compact fluorescent light bulb I give away offsets a half ton of carbon emissions.   You can also support clean energy by buying renewable energy credits at the rate of $4 or $5 per 1,000 miles of driving from online retailers like www.NativeEnergy.org   www.Carbonfund.org,   www.b-e-f.org,  or coming soon, Texas Interfaith Power and Light.

          Have you done your fair share of climate protection?

          Sorry about that - we had a typo. The May home tour is in Austin, not Houston. It is called the Cool House Tour .
