PUBLIC CITIZEN RELEASES THE RENEWABLE SOURCE: A NATIONAL DIRECTORY OF RESOURCES, COMPANIES, AND CONTACTS

Public Citizen’s Critical Mass Energy Project today released a new directory of contacts in the business, government, public interest, research, trade and utility sectors who have expertise in renewable energy systems and policies. Now in its fourth edition, The Renewable Source contains 2200 entries from all fifty states, the District of Columbia and several U.S. territories. “This directory is unique because it organizes a wide variety of individuals working on renewable energy technologies into an easy-to-read format that is useful for everyone from corporate executives to consumers who want to explore using renewable energy at home,” said Matthew Freedman, editor of The Renewable Source. Entries are listed state-by-state and arranged into categories and technologies. The directory contains contacts from non-profit advocacy organizations, renewable energy businesses, federal and state government agencies, government and private research institutions, professional and trade associations and electric utilities. Each entry has a contact person, address and phone number. Most entries include short descriptions and fax numbers and a few list e-mail addresses. Four indexes organize entries by contact name, organizational name, category and technology. Copies of The Renewable Source are available for $40 in book format, $70 for preprinted labels and $80 on computer disk (in both DOS and Macintosh formats). Discounts are available for public interest groups and Public Citizen members. Copies can be ordered by contacting Public Citizen’s publications office at 2000 P Street NW, Washington, D.C. 20036 (Phone: 202-833-3000).
