California's Second Annual Clean Power Day
May 19, 1997



What:

California's second annual Clean Power Day will showcase renewable energy and energy efficiency and energy efficiency companies in a one-day energy exhibition. The day's activities will feature imposing solar, wind and photovoltaic technology exhibits. A ceremony at noon is designed to inform consumers about new clean power choices in a restructured California electricity market and the formation of a new Working Group to establish criteria and standards for a "green labeling" verification program. Mid-day entertainment will be provided by the solar-powered music of the Rick Lotter Jazz Ensemble.


When:

Where:

L Street side of the State Capitol Grounds, Sacramento, California


Who:

Representatives of California's clean energy companies will showcase cutting-edge technologies that reduce electricity use and generate electricity from wind, solar, geotheral, biomass, and from state-of-the-art fuel cells. Consumers can learn first hand about how these technologies work, and meet with representatives of companies that will be providing "green electricity" to Californians beginning in January of next year.
