In a fit of crazed generosity, I have volunteered to be the organizer (for now) of the Seattle Renewable Energy Meetup Group. The group has been around for years, but the last organizer has moved on, and the Meetup company charges the organizer $75 to keep it going. Well gee, I have received so much support in Seattle for the hydropower company I founded, Hydrovolts, that $75 is nothing in comparison. It will be fun to stir things up with this new group and the timing could not be better, we are so excited our new Governor, Jay Inslee, is a huge advocate of renewable energy, see his great book, Apollo’s Fire. We’ll try to enlist him and his administration’s new staff into the renewable energy Meetup community. Please join if you live in Seattle and care about our energy future, and are a social critter.
