    Dear IGSHPA Friends,

    We think you will appreciate the latest district GHP advancement effort we filed.  This one is at MIT for 100% GHG elimination, with much of that "effectively free" with advanced GHP -

    This particular proposal's Team is Cary Smith, Ed Lohrenz, Don Penn, Carl Orio, and us under Net Zero Foundation. The Judges (there is a Judged best and Voted best) include some of the people responsible for implementing MIT's Climate Mitigation Plan, and we hope this opens the door into at least that institution. Our hope is to use this as a springboard to get all colleges and universities converted to GHP rapidly, especially all those still using steam.  

    Thank you and please give us any critical feedback -- we hope this accelerates adoption of GHP on a bigger scale.

    Kind regards,

    Rick & Judy
