Marin Residents and Businesses Can Win Big Savings, Carbon Reductions, Energy Security Upgrade from Local Power Works, LLC Clean Energy Bid
San Francisco, CA, August 05, 2009 --( Clean energy, aggressive demand reductions and physical re-localization of power supply would make better use of existing electricity supplies while maximizing reduction of the carbon foot print. The proposal to Marin Energy Authority includes a four-phase approach first improving existing energy efficiency, using available renewable energy sources, and rapid deployment of residential photovoltaic systems. As shown below, the following phases expand on the first phase and would develop clean energy production projects such as wind power and small hydroelectric sources.

Phase 1 – Improve customer energy use through energy efficiency, load control and “smart grid” measures
Residential photovoltaic program

Phase 2 – Nearby clean energy wind power development
Commercial/Industrial photovoltaic program

Phase 3 - Clean Energy wind power cooperatives

Phase 4 - Municipal partnerships involving landfill gas use and clean
small hydroelectric power
Regional geothermal development

Over a five-year period Local Power Works will work closely with the Marin Energy Authority to fund and implement projects from which county residents can benefit through direct participation in clean energy development, including an offering to every customer to own solar power.

Local Power Works CEO Paul Fenn, commented, “Our proposal would supply 76% clean power at or below PG&E rates while giving Marin residents the ability to chose the level of green power they want. A dark green option with 100% renewable energy will be offered to all customers at a 10% premium."

Local Power Works’ strategy is to involve the community in making the environment better through improving the way we use energy and developing, economic, clean power projects for the future. To accomplish this goal they have assembled a team of over a dozen leading local and national green power, smart grid and distributed generation companies to “fast track” clean energy development in local and nearby areas.
