On Sunday, Dec. 29 at 4 p.m., the Pajarito Environmental Education Center (PEEC) brings you a new movie that will open your eyes to creative uses of renewable energy and will challenge you to reconsider your own daily energy use. From the Emmy® award-winning producers of The Next Frontier, We’ve Got the Power is a new documentary on the economics of renewable energy. Filmmaker Brad Marshland will be in attendance at the film, to introduce it and answer questions afterward.
Sure, wind and solar are cleaner and safer than fossil fuels, but how would weaning ourselves from dirty energy affect our personal energy bills? Join host Becky Worley (of ABC’s Good Morning America) as she travels the world in search of surprisingly creative answers – answers that might just change the way you power your car and your home.
We’ve Got The Powervisits companies and communities where everyday people are putting wildly innovative ideas into daily use: from a new town near Davis, California – built from the ground up to use zero net energy – to Andalucía, Spain, where groundbreaking solar technology powers 20,000 homes AT NIGHT! We’ve Got The Power features such experts and innovators as former CIA Director R. James Woolsey and Nissan CEO Carlos Ghosn, along with teams of leading-edge engineers who are turning the promise of a green economy into profitable reality
The film will be shown at the Reel Deal Theater, at 2551 Central Ave. in Los Alamos. Tickets are $12 each and will be on sale in advance at the theater, or at the door.
