Shall I interpret that to say that you feel the Ralph Nader report is invalid?
You can do what you like of course, but on the strength of the Ralph Nader report, and the difficulties involved in moving people off the grid as it is, i can't see how someone will be interested in such little savings, especially when they find out it really isn't green after all.

GMTN - questionable company, good return on IPO day here's why->

The reason for the huge returns on the IPO date of the internet stocks aren't because they're all good companies (believe it or not!) The Investing public is not betting on the present, their betting on the way-way-way-future. Example: Media Metrix, great IPO-day preformance, jumped around 150% (maybe more, I will check) and in their prospectus there's a line that read something to the effect of "We may NEVER make any money." there are countless others to back that up.. (PCLN, the one that comes to mind, they also state in their prospectus "We may never be profitable") Same thing with VUSA (value america.com)
In closing, I will try my darndest to be in on GMTN, flip on day 1, and that's the end of it. This one IS NOT a long-term hold.

Haven't heard any green electricity ads so far. I have heard about lots of scams in the electricity marketing field, so personally i will stay away from this one.
One positive could be that there are now green mutual funds that may put $ into this class of company, eventually.

Billch-

Where are you located? I've spoken to several people in the greater Los Angeles area that have heard a good deal of GMTN ads.

Reasons why it will do well *** MUST READ ***
10. First of its kind
9. To fund other operations
8. Energy sector already beaten up, so downside somewhat limited
7. Heard the ipo to be priced around $10 - can't go much lower (EDGR has, but EDGR do well ultimately)
6. Business model - lower cost of distribution
5. Business model - energy 'portal'
4. Business model - partnerships with on-line related, affiliated , complementary companies
3. Earth & consumer friendly -- an informational mechanism
2. If you build it, they will come
1. The Wyly family is building it - putting $80 million in. This family has bucks and are winners!

I will get every dman share I can get!!

Bob,IPO Edge also gives Red Hat a MINUS 4 (with MINUS 5 their WORST POSSIBLE rating): if you read the Red Hat thread herein, it would seem that either the general investor sensibility of Silicon folks is totally off base . . . or else IPO Edge is? Anybody out there know more about them, and why their assessments seem so contrary to those one finds here? (Kind of like comparing Motley Fool to Barrons . . . as the Fools themselves just did in their take on Barrons' "Amazon.Bomb" cover story. Not that both don't have their uses, which hones my point: to what uses can IPO Edge be put?)

Hey Won,
Thanks for Greenmountain specs, GMTN looks interesting. I have a position in Keystone KESE they seem to have a lot in common. I was just out in LA and San Diego seems to be plenty of expansion.
