19 Apr

altbuild expo

It’s that time of year again, April is Earth Month, and all the sustainability expos start popping up in convention centers throughout the country, if you live in the LA area, and could only attend one show, mark your calenders, we’re excited to be taking part once again in the best show in town, the upcoming Alternative Building Materials & Design Expo AKA AltBuild.

It’s one of the most exciting, well-organized, sustainability oriented Green events in Los Angeles. The event is FREE to the public, but save considerable time and sign up for the event online now. The show will be held at the Santa Monica Civic Auditorium on Friday May 11th and Saturday May 12th, 2012, from 10am to 5pm.

Stop by the California Green Designs booth, #74 and catch up on all the latest gossip regarding solar. The leasing program has just taken another giant step forward, get all the details, because if there was ever a time to take advantage of a solar lease, it’s the new Sunpower one you should hear more about. We’ll also go over what’s happening with the SCE and LADWP rebates, there’s been movement on both fronts recently, and have on display two full-sized solar panels, an inverter, and a solar pathfinder – the instrument used to project the daily trek of the sun all year long.

There is a $9/car parking fee if you park in the nearby Civic parking lot, so car pool if you can. There is also Santa Monica’s FREE Bike Valet available.
