DOUBLE FEATURE
Presented by the Sierra Club of Northern Alameda County

THE VINEYARD ENERGY PROJECT

This film portrays Martha Vineyard's successful effort to implement sustainable energy solutions through the use of solar power. The film shows a small rural community's success in meeting its energy needs with solar energy. It was made to encourage people to move on alternative energy resources and show people how to increase energy conservation. It is a study of Martha's Vineyard, but the same problems and solutions can be applied broadly.

KILLOWATT OURS

This film takes us on a journey from the coal mines of West Virginia to the solar panel fields of Florida. The filmmaker, Jeff Barrie, and his wife, Heather, share a plan to eliminate their use of coal and nuclear power at home by employing energy conservation, energy efficiency, and renewable resources. Through their learning experience, we discover how we can save hundreds of dollars annually on energy bills, and use a portion of the savings to purchase renewable energy. Today, more that 50% of our nation's electricity is generated from coal. The most significant cause of each of these problems is our dependence on coal-generated electricity in America. In other words, the solution begins at our light swtiches and power strips. The film invites us to help build a net-zero nation by conserving energy to the greatest extent possible at home, then using clean, renewable energy to provide the electricity used.

Before and after the film, everyone's invited to our Humanist Tea House.
