Efficient + Disaster Resilient = Sustainable

Posted on August 28, 2011 at 12:00am 4 Comments

Hi Evan,

Thanks for the personal welcome note.

Would it be appropriate for me to call attention to your new website on my "energyfolks" email list (with about 3000 members)? If so, could you write a short paragraph that I could just paste into my next blurb?
