Environmental and Energy Study Institute (EESI)
February 26, 2009

I have been on the Board of Trustees for EESI since the beginning when I was very involved with Congressman Dick Ottenger in putting PURPA together. EESI has done a great job in educating the congressional staff and the congress on the importanc of clean renewable energy. EESI has been very helpful to Decker Energy International, Inc. and Midland Energy, L.L.C. in making contact and commuicating with congress. The fact that Preident Obama has a goal of doubling the amount of renewable energy produced in the U.S.A. in the next three years is evidence of EESI's good work.

The Great!

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

the education of congress and congressional staff in the importance of developing our energy supply of clean energy so we can eliminate importing so much foreign oil.

Ways to make it better...

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

continue the objectives and goals we now have.

contacts I have made with so many organizations and people that has helped me to carry out my passion for developing clean renewable energy that will cut down on our importing so much foreign oil

The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

accomplish its objectives and goals moe completely and effectively.

Ways to make it better...

I had more time to spend in the briefingsand operations of EESI during the last several years like I was able to do in the early years of EESI.

In my opinion, the biggest challenges facing this organization are...

continuing to raise the funds necesary to carry out our objectives and goals.

One thing I'd also say is that...

Keep up the fine work you are doing.

I joined the EESI Board of Directors in the very beginning when Congressman Richard Ottinger and I had been instrumental in getting "PURPA" passed. I am considered by many as the author of PURPA and Dick Ottinger is the one that got it passed. Decker Energy International, Inc. is a biomass company and has benefited from EESI's support and educational programs. For example; Carol Werner, Executive Director of EESI set up meetings for DEI with congressional staff. DEI still supports EESI in some of their educational meetings. I look foreward to setting up meetings with Obama's energy team when I am in Washington, D.C. for our next EESI Board Meeting to further develop President Obama's goal of doubling our renewable energy production and helping to reduce our oil imports. I am very happy that President Obamahas chosen Dr. Chu for his Secretary of Energy because his background is so well suited to developing renewable energy for our country. EESI is doing a very important job and doing it very well.
