LECTURE Thank you for all coming. And also for all of you who did not come and are marching to Sacramento, thank you as well. I went to Berkeley many years ago.

One of the points I wanted to get across here is that I have fifteen people on my team with ten million dollars, which comes from gas and federal funds. Three percent of your electricity and gas bills goes to energy efficiency projects. Five people on my team have engineering degrees and the rest don’t. While you’re doing this, one of the things you need to think about is what are you going to be doing after college. But in terms of why we do energy work in the city, there are three reasons.
