Each year about 120 small startups apply to the CCTO for recognition of their new renewable technology. The contest is "supposed" to determine who has promising renewable technology in five categories. The sponsors of this tech event pay a lot of sponsor fees. The contestants are well treated will lots of educational events food, beer wine and frolic.
Beware of the innocence image of the CCTO organization. Some of the Utility sponsors actually want to thwart your business. Some of CCTO sponsors are professional green washers. While they say one thing in public, behind the scenes they are doing activities that will undermine your renewable business strategy. Take for example all of the CTTO Utility sponsors are opposing pending legislation in Sacramento AB1807 and AB1910 that would significantly reduce Green House Gases in California. These bills are mirror bills of successful European Renewable legislation that now has 445 million people operating under a Feed in Tariff. A FIT would significantly grow the market for renewable energy in California. The California CCTO Utility sponsors and their hired lobbyists are doing everything behind the scenes to thwart AB32 (mandates reduction of GHG's) and keep the status quo.PRIVATE: Members Only (1001 Characters)
