Delivering the Bioroot Energy message to Washington

Senator Max Baucus, Jay Toups, CEO, Bioroot Energy, Senator Jon Tester

Bioroot Energy spent this week in Washington discussing clean energy legislation and meeting with people from all walks of life. It’s safe to say that the Bioroot Energy story is officially on the radar with Montana’s congressional delegation and staffers, as well as key Montana citizens and environmental groups for responsible climate and energy legislation. From the warm reception of our clean energy mission, and the messages delivered by our 11 member citizen lobby group, sponsored by Climate Solutions and Clean Energy Works, it was a successful trip and our messages were well received and timely.

People who care about our environment and the role of governments in legislation supporting clean energy are happy hearing about any business that could potentially put lots of people to work making cleaner transportation fuels, and clean up the environment in the process.

American citizens and our elected officials are beginning to better understand what other countries have long known – that aggressive pursuit of research and development of technology that will set the  pace for the world’s transition to a new energy economy and grant the winners huge, long-term economic benefits.
