Thank you so much to all who contributed to the great success of our year-end campaign, enabling us to keep working toward advancing sustainable energy this year and beyond!

We heard from individuals who sent in checks and gave online. Some wrote notes of encouragement and support. Some donors contacted their employers to double the impact of their gift through corporate matching programs. Others are monthly sustaining donors, giving year-round, which is convenient and also helps to reduce administrative costs. Some individuals, companies, associations, and family foundations have joined or renewed as EESI Associates—giving $1,000, $2,000, or more each year. Whatever the size or method of your gift, you helped us exceed our year-end campaign goal of $30,000! You are making it possible for our country to transition to a clean energy future. Thank you again!

Your support is more significant than ever, because 2012 is going to be a critical year in determining the roles of renewable energy and energy efficiency in our economy. Congress is back in session, the farm and transportation authorization bills are high on the agenda, and keeping the conversation about our energy future in the spotlight is vital. We are hard at work ensuring that members of Congress understand how imperative energy efficiency and renewable energy programs are to our health, economy, and long-term competitiveness —as we have done for almost 30 years.

With your help, we will continue making progress toward the clean energy future that we believe in for future generations. Let’s have a great 2012!
