The First Annual Solar Open House & Green Holiday Gift Fest

American Hi Definition/Sweetwater Digital
7635 Airport Business Park Way (at Saticoy)
Van Nuys, Ca 91406
Lots of free parking in lots across the street

Cool Stuff To Do There:

Roof-top tours of one of the San Fernando Valley's largest solar panel installations--a super-sized array large enough to power 30 single-family homes.

"Consumption-lite" holiday shopping: Donate to one of some 18 nonprofit organizations in a loved-one's name. The groups include Sierra Club, TreePeople, Global Green, Rainforest Action Network, American Lung Assn. of CA, Oceana, Sea Shepherd Conservation Society, Plug In America, Much Love Animal Rescue, Parrots First, Planned Parenthood.

Ride & drives of fully electric or hybrid electric vehicles--Toyota RAV4 EVs, ZENNs, a Plug-In Hybrid Conversion, an electric motorscooter, a Ford Ranger EV, an eBox by AC Propulsion and a motorized electric skateboard. We'll have a VW Jetta running on 100 percent biodiesel and the last-minute addition of a suped-up Insight.

Important speakers, including Assemblymember Lloyd Levine and former Assemblymember Fran Pavley--running head to head in next year's senate race. SPEAKER SCHEDULE ATTACHED.

Continuous screenings of "Who Killed the Electric Car?" and a talk by its director, Chris Paine, and main figure, former GM employee Chelsea Sexton.

Live Sustainably,
