Dear ,

Folks - the tipping point is here. Clean energy is on the move. Solutions
like solar and wind and electric vehicles are directly competing against
dirty fuels like tar sands oil, fracked gas, and dirty coal - and are

Enough with those who say we should be building pipelines to the past. Let's
put our money where our mouths are and start creating demand for the
assembly lines of our clean energy future. Will you join me?

Solar prices are down 80% over the last 5 years. The Financial Times, not
exactly a bastion of liberal thought, reports that solar and wind are
already cheaper than new fossil fuels. Goldman Sachs says powering your
electric vehicle with sun on your roof is a money-making proposition. The
clean-energy revolution is here. 

That's why the Sierra Club is launching Drive Green for Life
<http://action.sierraclub.org/site/R?i=u7NuinGOWtnjyl2hqteCIA> , in
partnership with two American companies - SunPower and Ford - to help you
and your family move beyond fossil fuels while saving money and staking your
claim in the clean energy revolution. 

My family is fortunate to live in an area with excellent public
transportation which I use daily, but I still need a car, and since
installing solar panels on my home and buying a plug-in hybrid electric
vehicle 18 months ago, I've driven over 12,000 miles while averaging nearly
90 miles per gallon. Over 80% of those miles have been powered by the sun on
my roof. All in, my family is saving $2,000 a year. 

 <http://action.sierraclub.org/site/R?i=iKJlQHeMDjwK0pcR64iO-A> How would
you like to save money every year, while reducing your carbon footprint and
creating good local jobs? 

With Drive Green for Life, powering your home and your vehicle with sunshine
is easy: 

1.    Drive Green - Purchase or lease a battery-electric or plug-in hybrid
vehicle from Ford.* Already have one? Move on to step 2!

2.    Save Green - Go solar
<http://action.sierraclub.org/site/R?i=g0WehtpUKnDe0JCjS4sl4A>  and receive
a $750 rebate back from your purchased or leased SunPower solar system**.
Plus, save on electricity and fuel costs down the road.

3.    Charge Green - Charge your plug-in electric car at home using the
clean energy from the sun with your new SunPower solar system and save on

4.    Give Green - For each solar system installed, SunPower will donate
$500 to support the Sierra Club's work to protect clean air, clean water,
and irreplaceable wildlife and wild lands.

If we all continue to adopt smart, clean, renewable energy technologies and
solutions like rooftop solar and electric vehicles together, we will make
sure that clean energy keeps winning long into the future. Take the first
step -- learn more here!

Thanks for everything you do for the environment,
