Today: Green economy briefing in Redwood City


State and local advocates for shaping California's green economy will be in Redwood City today (Oct. 22) for an informational briefing and a tour of a solar technology company in San Jose.

Assemblyman Pedro Nava, D-Santa Barbara, who chairs the Assembly Select Committee on California's Green Economy, will host a meeting that will focus on green technology and job creation in San Mateo County and Silicon Valley.

"Business education and community leaders in Silicon Valley have been working together to spur investment and growth in our green economy," Nava said in a statement. "I want to spotlight the successes and take their example to other parts of the state."

Rich Gordon, president of the San Mateo County Board of Supervisors, is expected to take part in the briefing, along with business, education and community leaders.

The briefing is taking place from 9 a.m. until noon at the Board of Supervisors chambers at 400 County Center in Redwood City.

A tour of the Nanosolar Inc. headquarters and manufacturing facility will follow at 1:30 p.m. Nanosolar is located at 5521 Hellyer Ave. in San Jose.
