The time has come for common sense answers to the energy crisis in America. A provocative new book, Re-Energizing America: A Common-Sense Approach to Achieving U.S. Energy Independence in Our Generation, provides those answers. Author Jay Marhoefer, a strategist, energy consultant, IT executive and lawyer, describes a step-by-step approach for creating sustainable energy independence in the United States. Marhoefer's approach, called Intelligent GenerationT, uses conventional, renewable, and information technologies to provide homeowners, communities, and small businesses a way to acquire energy when it is least expensive. Later, when energy is at its highest price, consumers can use what they have stored to power their appliances, heat their homes, and even fuel their automobiles. The result of Intelligent Generation'sT virtual network of individual power generators is cost-efficient, sustainable energy and millions of new American jobs. Re-Energizing America includes significant new insights about America's energy future. For example, it explains how combining wind and solar energy can be cost-effective for 60 percent of the U.S. population. It reveals that Mexico's energy situation poses as great a threat to the U.S. in 15 years as our reliance on the Persian Gulf if we fail to take appropriate action. It exposes the true, full measure of future U.S. reliance on OPEC that is hidden in government statistics. Re-Energizing America provides straightforward, common sense, and affordable answers to our twin problems of OPEC dependence and global warming. It is truly a book for our time.
