From its discovery on Sulfur Mountain in 1861, oil has been a major part of the Ventura County economy. However, scientists warn that 80% of fossil fuels must stay in the ground and the Pentagon warns that dependence on fossil fuels is the greatest long‐term national security threat confronting the U.S. Gov. Brown now aims for 50% renewable energy sources by 2030. Local governments and the Naval Bases are transitioning away from fossil fuels with the creation of green jobs and a more sustainable economy.
How can families and businesses make faster progress on this path? Join a panel discussion with Community Environmental Council, Ventura County emPower, the Ventura County Climate Hub and solar industry representatives. We’ll explore energy efficiency and power generation for homes and businesses. Learn about the latest trends and opportunities for increasing renewables and local power generation through new community choice clean energy programs in California.
This meeting will be held at Bell Arts Factory instead of at the library because the library is having a major event, Foster Con 2015, the weekend of February 28/March 1.
