KPIX Channel 5 5-6pm, 6:30-7pm
San Jose, CA Bay area
If you're not interested in TV coverage of EVs / renewable power, please
delete now. I apologize for the inconvenience. I sent this to a broad list
since many of us work hard to get favorable EV / renewable energy coverage
and this will likely be good coverage. It focuses more on the power
reliability / renewable power with the EV in the background.
I may be on KPIX 5 News in the San Jose, CA bay area tonight with the GM
NiMH EV1 and the Solar Electric (PV) Array that provides 90% of the
electricity for the house, christmas lights and Electric Vehicle.
I spotted a KPIX camera van covering the Stage 2 and Stage 3 power
emergencies we've been having after a meeting I had about using Natural
Gas instead of toxic, carcinogenic Diesel buses in Santa Clara county.
They were in front of the PG&E building so I parked the EV in front and
asked them what they were covering. Since they were covering the power
emergencies and possible blackouts they were intrigued by my Solar
Electric Array and they followed me home where they shot the Solar Array,
me happily turning on my Christmas lights since I had generated power and
turned off other bigger loads. Then we did an interview.
It wasn't part of the original story but the reporter was very interested
and he's working on an angle to incorporate into his coverage of the power
emergencies we've been for most of the week. It will very likely air in at
least one of the newscasts. It might not get into both.
