As consumers get ready to turn their eyes to the skies for the August 21stsolar eclipse, Conserve Energy SoCal is celebrating with an eclipse-themed event at the iconic solar-powered Pacific Wheel at Pacific Park on the Santa Monica Pier.
Consumers are invited to conserve energy and celebrate the eclipse by powering down at home and coming out and enjoy a night of fun on the Pier. The evening will include the following, provided by Conserve Energy SoCal:
- An eclipse and conservation themed light program on the Wheel, beginning at dusk
- FREE eclipse viewing glasses handed out at the Wheel, from 3pm – 11pm PST(or while supplies last)
- FREE entry for ten (10) lucky Facebook contest winners. Each winner will receive unlimited ride wristbands for them and a guest to enjoy the Pacific Park and the Wheel. Enter before Monday, August 14th at facebook.com/ConserveEnergySoCal.
During a solar eclipse, less sunlight reaches our solar panels, meaning solar power output could decrease by more than 60%. To prepare, Conserve Energy SoCal is urges consumers to remain aware and ready to act, in case we need to conserve this day. The Wheel’s dazzling lights will serve as a reminder to everyone of the importance of energy conservation.
