Following up on a fun #iheartwind week, the American Wind Energy Association (@AWEA), the Solar Energy Industries Association (@SEIA), the American Council On Renewable Energy (@ACORE), and others have designated this week leading up to Earth Day as #iheartrenewables week.
You can help spread the message that we need, want, and love renewable energy by joining in the fun on Facebook, Twitter, and/or Google+. All you have to do is share some love in text, with pictures, with video, or in some other creative way while adding this tag on the end of your share or tweet: #iheartrenewables
I'm sharing 8 of my favorites clean energy videos on Twitter and Google+ in order to celebrate (and probably much more, to be honest). Here are some more ideas provided by David Ward of AWEA, the first person to let me know about this fun initiative:
- 1. Simply telling everyone why you love wind power and other renewables. For ex: #iheartrenewables b/c U.S. #windpower avoids enough carbon dioxide emissions a year to take the equivalent of 17 million cars off the road!
- 2. Taking a picture of yourself at a wind farm
- 3. Taking a picture of yourself at work, at home, or anywhere and holding up a sign for why you "heart" renewables.
- 4. You can even tell us why you support federal policy, like the Production Tax Credit or PTC, that encourages American wind power's growth.
Here are some of my favorites tweets so far:
