1st World Sustainable Energy Trade Fair
Dear GENI Friend,
We have just returned from the 1st World Sustainable Energy Trade Fair, and it was a heartening expo of ideas and technologies for the coming millennium. There is a growing cadre of companies that are making great inroads into power production that is sustainable, i.e. renewable energy.

I do hope you will consider the Long Distance telephone service offer made last month. It's an easy way to support GENI with every call (available only in North America) at cost-competitive rates. Just call, fax or e-mail me and I'll have Wayne Morgan get back with the details.
Thanks very much for your partnership. It makes all
the difference when I'm on a stage alone to have you
