The city of Pleasanton and its Committee on Energy and the Environment will present the second of its free lecture series, focused on the topic of Green Vehicle Alternatives, at 2 p.m., today at the Pleasanton Senior Center, 5353 Sunol Blvd.
The lecture will include a panel discussion about compressed natural gas vehicles, electric vehicles, and other transportation options such as natural gas operated scooters and Segway personal vehicles. A display of alternative energy vehicles will also be on display.
The California Energy Commission reports that more than 40% of all energy used in the state moves people and goods, and almost all of this transportation energy demand is met by petroleum, making California the third-largest consumer of transportation fuels in the world (behind the United States as a whole and China). This high level of consumption comes at a cost to the state's economy and environment.
This free lecture will provide consumers with the latest information about alternative energy transportation options. For more information, call 931-5500.
