Green Tech at Vanguard of Economic Recovery?

(EMAILWIRE.COM, November 05, 2008 ) SACRAMENTO – One school district in California is looking to solar energy to save money and even create a surplus to invest in a sports stadium.

Seeking to raise $6 million to build a new stadium, a high school in the central valley of California is looking at ways to use its roof areas and other land to host solar panels to create a surplus energy. This energy be used by other schools within its district.

"The school district wanted to find a way to save money via reduced energy usage to help accomplish their goal of building a new stadium. Through an opportunity in solar power generation we are helping them reach their goal more quickly and more easily than by other means," said Paul Galindo, Senior Consultant for Go Green Consultants (http://GoGreenConsulting.TV).

Millions of Green Collar Jobs

Another longtime supporter of green energy, clean technology, and renewable resources, California's former Lieutenant Governor, Cruz Bustamante, mentioned that, "Cities are seeing their budgets deeply in the red and California's statewide governmental financial system is undergoing a terrible crisis." Part of the reason for this, according to Bustamante, is rapid declines in tax revenues as a result of lower home values spurred in part by the foreclosure crisis.

And yet, despite this sobering perspective, California is known around the world as a leading area for green, clean, and renewable resources technology. According to Cesar Diaz, the Deputy Legislative Director for the State Building and Constructions Trades Council of California, green tech is one of the most important business sectors that will create millions of good paying jobs in the near and distant future.

"With unemployment rapidly rising, our federal legislators should capture this golden opportunity to create more jobs and a stronger economy through investments in renewable energy and the high wage jobs the industry provides,” said Diaz.
