Parrilla Energy Is Offering Carbon Offsets

Saturday, February 12th, 2011

Over the past 3 years we have been working to perfect solar updraft towers. And while searching for suitable locations to place our towers, I realized that we could procure land and offer carbon offsets to our customers.

What exactly is a carbon offset? The basic premise is to zero out your carbon footprint. We can look at your electrical usage, and determine how much CO2 was produced to create that electricity. We would then plant trees and shrubs that would absorb that amount of CO2 to zero out your carbon footprint.

We believe this is a action everyone can take to make a difference.

We have acquired large plots of land suitable for planting and preservation. This will allow us to offer carbon offsets to individuals, small businesses, and large businesses. For more information see our website.

Green Energy Forum

Tuesday, October 13th, 2009

I will be holding an informational public forum to discuss green energy: what it is, how we can benefit from it, and how it can help sustain traditional businesses during times of economic slowdown. There will be a question and answer session afterwards.

The general public is invited to attend. Seating will be limited to the first 50 people.

It will begin at 6:30PM at the South Natomas Community Center, located at 2921 Truxel Road, Sacramento, CA 95833. A map can be located here.

The Renewable Energy Industry Must Double In Size In The Next Few Years

Wednesday, July 29th, 2009
Renewable energy is a $7 billion industry. The US government has an order in place to purchase 20% of its energy
from renewable sources. Many states have mandates stating 20% of their electricity must be clean and
renewable by 2012. To do this the renewable energy industry must double in size in the next few years.
