Silicon Valley Not Yet Green Enough

According to the Peninsula press, at the recent 2012 Silicon Valley Conference panelists agreed that despite the rise in venture capital investment for clean technology we still have a long way to go. The old saying that “charity begins at home” is being paraphrased by the panelists who want to see a push to bring clean technology straight into homes by showing households how much they can save by using greener appliances and solar energy.

The mayor of San Jose, Chuck Reed, insisted that the constant innovation taking place in Silicon Valley makes it an ideal candidate for the development and refinemnet of green technology, adding “that’s the easy part….it’s just going to happen.”
