Learn about Green Vehicles Alternatives at special event today

Pleasanton Committee on Energy and the Environment is offering free lectureat 2 p.m. at Senior Center

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.
