I am contacting the TZ Bridge Environmental Review Team, Governor Paterson, members of the NYS Legislature and will be encouraging them to follow up on Mayor Bloomberg's suggestion that windmills be placed on NYC bridges and skyscrapers. This is a perfect time to study the feasibility of placing a windmill on the TZ bridge. NYS is currently studying vvarious options for the bridge--either major rehabilition or a new bridge. If construction of the windmill takes place at the same time as construction or rehabilitation of the TZ bridge there will be little inconvenience to motorists. Placing a windmill on top of the bridge will send a constant message to the public--how important it is for our nation to become more energy efficient.
The following is an e mail I sent to the project team of the Tappan Zee bridge study group. I will be writing similar letters to other state leaders and environmental activists.

Dear Mr. Anderson:
  Mayor Bloomberg's proposal to place windmills on the city's bridges and skyscapers as part of a major effort to develop renewable energy motivated me to write this letter to you --to encourage the NYS Tappan Zee Bridge team to study the feasibility of placing a windmill on the Tappan Zee bridge. Your team is currently reviewing a number of options. These options include major bridge rehabilitation and the replacement of the existing Tappan Zee bridge with a new bridge.
  This is a perfect time to study the feasibility of placing a windmill on the Tappan Zee bridge. If construction of the windmill takes place at the same time as construction or rehabilitation of the TZ bridge there will be little inconvenience to motorists. If a new bridge is built - putting a windmill on top of the bridge will send a constant message to the public -- how important it is for our nation to become more energy efficient. The new TZ bridge will be a bridge of the 21st century!
  Mayor Bloomberg's proposal is a bold initiative that can help generate significant electricity for our region. Wind power is clean. You are currently study the TZ Bridge options. Please explore this option as part of your study.
