Renewable Energy Plays Big Role on Earth Day

New Hampshire, United States [RenewableEnergyWorld.com]
Renewable energy is set to take center stage tomorrow as Earth Day
activities take place across the United States. In San Francisco, the
city's Budget & Finance Committee will be voting on what would be
California's largest solar photovoltaic power project  a 5-megawatt,
25,000 panel system covering the equivalent of 12 football fields on
the rooftop of the Sunset Reservoir at Ortega Street and 24th Avenue.

RenewableEnergyWorld.com is also celebrating Earth Day by giving
companies the opportunity to post single jobs for free on our website.

If approved, the project would triple the amount of renewable energy
generated in the City by 2010. This would mean more clean power for
public services and buildings such as Muni, SFO, streetlights and city
schools. This shovel-ready project will also create immediately 70
green jobs, including electricians, laborers and operators.

Cruise Car Inc. will showcase its solar electric hybrid vehicles on
Capitol Hill in Washington D.C. p.m. to demonstrate the ecological and
economical benefits of operating solar powered low speed vehicles.

"What could be better than Earth Day to show people just how much we
benefit from the sun," says Greg Hyde, spokesman for Cruise Car.
"Solar energy is rapidly growing in its potential for providing
alternative energy solutions and we are here to show people how they
can use the free resources of the sun for low speed vehicle
transportation."

Green Power Labs Inc. is celebrating Earth Day by providing free 24-
hour access to its SolarRating Online service. Using the service,
homeowners can enter thier address and follow steps to calculate their
homes solar resource rating as a first step in understanding how
solar technology might be used to reduce your family's energy costs.

We want to educate as many people as possible and to deepen
understanding about what solar energy can do said Dr. Alexandre
Pavlovski, Green Power Labs CEO. Broad acceptance of solar technology
absolutely requires its efficient deployment is ensured. This means
assessment of the solar resource at a specific site and understanding
its solar energy generation potential as the first step in determining
suitability for solar energy applications.

Also on Earth Day, the U.S. Coast Guard Yard will open the Landfill
Gas Renewable Energy Center with start-up of main engines that will
burn methane from a nearby Baltimore City landfill and convert the gas
into two forms of energy  electricity and steam  for the shipyards
energy use. The project, knows as Light-Off, a maritime term
indicating completion of the major mechanical and electrical systems
of a ship, making it ready for sail signals the Coast Guard Yard is
ready to operate with renewable energy for the next 15 years.
