The MVCC Green Committee invites you to the Wise Power Use Expo

Councilman Bill Rosendahl and the MVCC Green Committee invite you to join us at the Wise Power Use Expo on November 3rd, 6:30 PM at the Windward School.

Learn easy ways to save electricity and money in your own home!

Chris Paine, director of "Revenge of the Electric Car" (Spring, 2011) and co-founder the media project "Counter-Spill", will share how he transformed an original Mid 20th Century Modern home into Marrakesh House - a model for sustainable living in the 21st century.

Kevin O’Donnell (thread collaborative) will present a module from The Climate Project that speaks to why we need to worry about getting off coal and convert to renewable energy. See his presentation here.
Nancy Barba (Sustainable Works, BKi) will offer us a blueprint on the part we can play individually to get our community off coal. She will speak to the easy changes we can make in our homes and business to reduce our electricity consumption and walk us through the numbers on roof top solar – the cost and the expected pay back.

André Villaseñor (Southern California Sustainability Coordinator in the EPA  L.A. Field Office) will tell us what it means for Mar Vista to become an EPA Green Power Community. See his presentation here.

Electricity rates have already gone up and we know that they will go up further in the months ahead. Guest speakers will help us learn how to lower our electrical use and what our options are for renewable energy.

LOCAL resources will provide information on energy saving solutions with special discounts and FREE exciting energy conservation raffle items.
Table presenters will present solutions to conserve electricity or convert to renewable energy – and all will offer significant discounts to the community and donate incredible raffle items like whole house energy audits. We will all learn why this is an important issue and what we can do to help - and access solutions on the spot!

We are holding it in the gymnasium at the Windward School at 11350 Palms Avenue in Mar Vista. Windward is one of the first schools in California to receive a LEED (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design) for Schools verification

Table presentations will open at 6:30 pm and speakers will be at 7:30.
