WASHINGTON, June 28 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- We Can Lead, a project of Ceres and the Clean Economy Network, launches the third spot in a $1 million television advertising campaign. This ad features Tim Healy, CEO, Chairman, and Co-Founder of EnerNOC.  

Stating that, "Congress can no longer punt on energy and climate reform," Tim Healy urges passage of a clean energy climate plan that will create jobs in Massachusetts.  

EnerNOC, headquartered in Boston, Mass., is transforming the way the world uses energy by helping commercial, institutional and industrial organizations use energy more intelligently, pay less for it, and generate cash flow that benefits the bottom line. EnerNOC's technology-enabled energy management solutions help meet the needs of utilities/grid operators that deliver energy and are responsible for maintaining the real-time balance between supply and demand.

Business leaders throughout Massachusetts and nationwide are calling on the Senate to act on a climate and energy plan that will put a price on carbon pollution, unleash capital markets and innovation, spur clean energy investment and create thousands of new American jobs.

The television ad begins airing in the Boston market starting today, the day before President Obama's bi-partisan meeting with Senators to discuss moving forward on energy legislation. The ad will air throughout the rest of the week.  

Text of the ad:

"The Gulf oil disaster makes one thing really clear -- It's time for America to clean up our energy act.

"Congress can no longer punt on energy and climate reform.

"Both our senators know how important this is to the Commonwealth.

"I mean some of the leading companies in energy efficiency are based right here in Massachusetts -- including mine.

"Call your senators today.

"It's time to level the playing field for Massachusetts companies.

"A clean energy and climate plan means real jobs, right here.

"This isn't a partisan issue -- It's an American issue."
