Come check out what is new in green energy with some free tours. The San José Green Vision Clean Energy Showcase will give you hands-on experience with advanced solar, wind and energy efficiency technologies and provide information required to make informed decisions about clean energy options. The San José Green Vision Clean Energy Showcase is a new interactive education center that will serves as a knowledge hub for visitors from across the Silicon Valley. The Showcase is home to demonstrations of cutting edge technologies and services available on the market today and in the future. This project represents a major opportunity to advance key goals of the City’s Green Vision as it looks to educate consumers about clean energy solutions and advance available resources for green collar workforce training. The City of San José has embarked upon two very ambitious energy goals through its Green Vision, a fifteen year plan for economic growth, environmental sustainability, and an enhanced quality of life for its community. These goals aim to reduce per capita energy use by 50%, and receive 100% of our electricity from renewable energy sources.
From January 15, 2011 through December 2011, the San José Green Vision Clean Energy Showcase welcomes tours weekdays for schools and professional groups and on Saturdays for the general public. Guided tours are provided free of charge and last 1 hour, with two tours daily at 11:00 am and again at 1:00 pm. Weekday tours for schools and groups are available by appointment.
