A bright and hopeful day is dawning when we make the conversion from the fossil fuel energy economy of centuries past to a 21st Century economy built on sustainability, efficiency, renewable energy and integrity. This new economy will not only grow soundly but it will also be replete with quality jobs that our local community and all of America can be proud of. What's required is thinking differently, breaking the conventional mold and starting something new and meaningful.
