Improving business, and home energy efficiency is the theme of an event on the Central Coast this week.
The 4th Annual Green Business Energy Efficiency Forum will take place Wednesday in Santa Maria.
A coalition of community groups is sponsoring the free event, which will feature displays, and a series of seminars.
Among the scheduled talks is a presentation on the proposed Cuyama Valley Solar Project, a 327 acre development which would provide enough electricity to power about 13,000 homes.
The forum is set to take place from 8:30 a.m. to 1 p.m. Wednesday at the Santa Maria Elks Lodge.
