Fit for Green harnesses power of exercise
Fit for Green is combining clean energy and healthy competition – this combination creates a unique fitness idea that will help lower energy bills by capturing exercise energy and put it back into the grid. The program has made a small dent in the utility bill at UC Irvine's Anteater Recreation Center, where Fit for Green has converted eight elliptical machines to a windmill-energy-type system.

Eco Wave Power (EWP), an Israeli wave power designer and manufacturer, has completed the first open water phase of testing for its new wave energy device. The next phase  for the device will be to move into a different coastal structure to demonstrate the wave energy generation system can work in any ocean environment.

At an event last night, ClearEdge Power, a manufacturer of scalable, continuous onsite power systems, debuted their fuel cell system at Roger’s Gardens, a destination home and garden store Newport Beach. The 15-kW system will allow Roger’s Gardens to reduce their greenhouse gas emissions by more than 40 percent each year and lower their annual energy bills through the efficient, onsite generation of electricity and heat.
