Renewable and Grateful: Sharing the Bounty of Renewable Energy
As the trees shed their leaves to announce the end of the growing season in the Midwest, many will use this time of year to reflect on the past several months and develop plans for the new year that is fast approaching.
As we join together with those living under the same roof or virtually with those from afar over this Thanksgiving holiday, let us be thankful for the freedoms we have been given and the technologies that have been developed to allow us to bring new energy sources to our communities.
Thanksgiving Day is a reminder to us all to take a moment to give thanks for the many blessings we have – a God who loves us, all of our family and extended family, friends near or far, meaningful work, a roof over our heads, food on our tables, and the hope of health and well-being. This has been a year of challenges and we give thanks for the many medical professionals and specialists who are working tirelessly to put an end to this pandemic.
As we review the past year, we at Hoosiers for Renewables are thankful for a year full of outreach and action on the benefits of renewable energy, but more importantly on the freedoms we are allowed in this country to share the facts about renewable energy and promote energy diversification
We are thankful for the ability to try new and different things, such as solar or wind energy, and the willingness of Hoosiers to open their minds to new possibilities in Indiana’s energy mix. As we join together with those living under the same roof or virtually with those from afar over this Thanksgiving holiday, let us be thankful for the freedoms we have been given and the technologies that have been developed to allow us to bring new energy sources to our communities.
From the days of the wind mills dotting our lands to pull needed water out of the ground, to the coal-energy that helped us develop the industrial age, to the wind and solar farms that will power our new technologies long in to the future – we give thanks for being given the opportunity to power our homes, farms and businesses with updated technologies.
Thank you to everyone who has signed up on our website, Facebook or Twitter to support Hoosiers for Renewables. We will continue to expand our efforts to share information about the benefits of renewables and to be a resource on the facts of the ever-changing energy environment in Indiana.
I am thankful for the opportunity to help move our rural communities forward by providing information on renewables as a new economic development tool and I hope we have an opportunity to meet face-to-face in the near future.
