Solar Energy Conference & Tour
Councilwoman Gerrie Schipske and her Solar Energy Task Force are proud to host their first Solar Energy Conference and Tour on Saturday, May 3, 2008 at the El Dorado Senior Center on 2800 Studebaker Road from 9 a.m. to 4:30 p.m.

The Solar Energy Conference is an all-day event where you can explore the ever-changing landscape of solar legislation, trends, technologies and economics with local industry and government experts and find out why solar energy is important to the future of Long Beach. This event is FREE.
The Solar Conference 2008 will include a panel discussion, workshops and a tour of solar powered homes.

Workshops will cover a range of topics: how to make homes and businesses energy efficient, how solar systems work, and how much money a solar system can save.

To give residents a first-hand look at what solar energy can do, a tour of solar powered homes and facilities in the 5th Council District will be conducted via bus transportation or by bicycle. The tour will visit solar-friendly homes and businesses to see solar panels, solar water heaters, electric vehicles and other energy saving features.  Space is limited on the tour, so people are encouraged to call the 5th Council District Office to reserve a space on the bus.
