A new ad campaign by the Renewable Fuels Association (RFA) says ethanol is the answer to energy independence that’s “Right Here, Right Now.”
The thirty second ad began airing this morning on MSNBC’s Morning Joe news program in the Washington, DC media market and will continue through October 12 with nine spots per week. The target audience is policy makers in the nation’s capitol.
The ad educates viewers that ethanol is an American-made product produced from coast-to-coast, in over 200 ethanol plants – from Rancho Cucamonga, California to Peoria, Illinois to Shelby, New York – creating over 12 billion gallons of clean, renewable energy fueling nearly 400,000 jobs across the economy.
“After a historic oil spill off our shores and in the midst of both an economic slowdown and two wars, ethanol has never been more important. Ethanol is creating and sustaining good paying jobs in rural communities where job-creation is especially difficult. Ethanol is providing consumers with a clean, green, American-made alternative to petroleum, often from hostile countries like Iraq and Venezuela. Right here, right now is the time for the ethanol industry to tell its story,” explained Bob Dinneen, RFA President and CEO.
