Energy Day on the Green
by Gary Hedden
GreenTown Los Altos hosted another successful Energy Day on the Green August 19. The highlight was the give-away of 20 electric chargers to some very happy electric car owners. GreenTown wants your next car to be electric and this is one way to promote the idea. Thank you PowerFlex, a Los Altos company, for the generous donation.
We also had HomeIntel telling us about their energy saving program that can save 10-12% on your gas and electricity bill. They gave smart power strips to people who signed up for an audit of their energy use.
Silicon Valley Clean Energy (SVCE), our provider of fossil-fuel-free electricity, was there to answer questions and tell us about some new programs heading our way next year.
We had solar panel installers SunWork, Slingshot, and Clean Solar, Acterra with information on smart energy and water use, electric cars, electric bikes and more. We also had the always popular solar cooker baking some fresh cookies and coffee cake.
It all made for a very fun day!
