SACRAMENTO, Calif., June 24 /PRNewswire/ -- "California BrightSpot: Clean Energy is Putting California to Work," a new website, e-newsletter, and information hub for California's clean energy and clean tech sector, was launched today by the California Business Alliance for a Green Economy.
"Gold built the California economy and green is sustaining it," says Susan Frank of the California Business Alliance for a Green Economy. "The clean energy and clean tech sector is one of the few bright spots in California's sluggish economy: unemployed workers are being hired for jobs up and down the career ladder throughout the state, including some counties hardest hit by the recession. This information center is chock full of good news about these examples of our state's leadership in clean tech and shows how vital it is for the California Air Resources Board (ARB) to continue adopting effective standards to implement AB 32, our state's roadmap to a clean energy future."
The website, www.CaBrightSpot.com, features a short video of California employers and workers extolling the values of California's clean tech economy. Firms from Los Angeles, Silicon Valley, and other parts of the state are featured with many pointing to the state's clean energy policies as the reason for explosive growth in their workplace and advancement in their job skills.
The website also features a daily update of California clean tech news, studies on state policies that foster job-creation, organizations and clean tech companies, and other materials. Coming soon, a Spanish-language section will offer valuable information to Spanish-speaking audiences across California.
"The Daily Bright Spot", http://www.CaBrightSpot.com/#newsletter, a free e-newsletter that site users can sign up online, provides a round-up of daily news stories on the clean tech industry in California.
In addition, site users can take action by sending direct emails to ARB Board members urging them to adopt strong standards to implement AB 32.
CaBrightSpot.com is sponsored by the California Business Alliance for a Green Economy, which supports the implementation of California's clean energy policies, including AB 32, by the California Air Resources Board (ARB) and other public agencies.
