Renewable Energy Rising begins as provocative campaign on Earth Day 2011
The US Renewable Energy Association, LLC, a recognized leading renewable energy association, has announced the launch of a new non-profit organization under the name of “Renewable Energy Rising”(rerising.org). The group will work toward advancing the technologies, policies and become an advocate for the renewable energy industry in all its forms. According to Gerald Zack, USREA President, “The time has come to advance the renewable energy industry in ways that go beyond being trendy, fashionable or group-think. The industry needs a focused push to bring real energy solutions into everyday life. We intend to do just that with the help of industry companies and renewable enthusiasts across North America and from around the world.”
The campaign begins with a provocative poster, Tee shirt and bumper sticker campaign that features the Statue of Liberty holding a Wind Turbine in place of a torch and Solar Panels in place of a book.
