Installing solar power at the Kensington Veterinary Hospital on Adams Avenue seemed like a great way to combine long-held environmental values with a need for increased electricity, according to co-owner Dr. Patricia Ungar. Now that solar panels are producing a third of the pet center’s energy and providing up to a 40 percent utility bill savings, she’s also feeling a great deal of financial satisfaction.
CCSE has appointed three new members to its board of directors, bringing the total to 15 individuals who help guide the organization in its mission to accelerate the adoption of clean energy policies and technologies.
They are Daniel Chia, director of policy and electricity markets for SolarCity; Angelina Galiteva, governing board member of the California Independent System Operator; and Michael Kelly, executive director of the Los Angeles Coalition for the Economy & Jobs.
CCSE is participating in a free workshop exploring the options and strategies for organizing clean transportation commuting programs for local employers sponsored by the San Diego Regional Clean Cities Coalition from 11:30 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. on Tuesday, April 8, at the San Diego Automotive Museum.
