This month our
issue is devoted to energy independence and risk
management – a combination that works well
together. And it also ties in nicely with this
year’s keynote address by T. Boone Pickens at
PMI’s® Global Congress, Oct. 10 – 13, where he’s
talking about decreasing America’s reliance on
imported oil. I’ll be listening to him, as well
as giving my own keynote at the Gov SIG meeting
on Oct. 10, from 1:00 – 3:00 p.m. Be sure to
stop by the Cheetah booth if you’re at the
Global Congress, booth #515, to say hello and
enter our drawing for a $300 gas card. But
before you head down to Orlando for the Global
Congress, be sure to read this month’s
Know How Network article and this
issue’s first article
Do You Manage Risk or Does It Just Happen?
to learn more about our October hot topics.
You’ll not only enjoy the information in our
The Cost of Energy,
but you’ll probably have fun checking out how
much what you do – and don’t do – in terms of
electrical appliances costs you each month. Be
sure to take a few minutes to check out my
and don’t forget to find out more about our
Project Energy Professional
certification in this month’s
PDU Corner. Hope to see you in

Before Energy Independence I’ll Be Energy
independence is a bigger project than you’re
ready for right now, don't be disappointed. There’s
plenty you can do to simply become more energy
efficient. New windows or appliances, keeping it
a bit cooler (or warmer) in your home, being
more aware of lights, fans and televisions. So
click on the link above, and let us know which
energy efficient thing you’d choose to do.
Every day’s a sunny day – or at least it is
when you’re collecting solar power. And when
you invest in wind or solar power, you’re
choosing a future of renewable energy
sources, not ones that will soon be gone.
Explore the energy options available to you
at home and at work.
