Mayor Schaaf to Announce New Statewide Energy Saving Initiative, Empower Residents to Reduce Energy

Mayor Schaaf will be joined by other California mayors, OhmConnect, and the California Energy Commission to launch a new competition to prevent blackouts ahead of the summer heat

Oakland, CA – On Wednesday, May 19, Mayor Schaaf will speak at a virtual press conference with several other California mayors, the California Energy Commission, and Oakland-based OhmConnect to announce OhmConnect’s City Energy Challenge. This statewide competition invites California cities to compete to save energy and prevent blackouts this summer.

California is already experiencing its driest year in more than four decades. With a continued drought and rising temperatures, much of the state is expected to be threatened by rolling blackouts this summer and beyond. OhmConnect’s platform empowers residents to work together and save enough energy to help minimize the risk of future blackouts. During the mid-August 2020 heatwave, for example, the OhmConnect community helped to prevent blackouts on six additional days in California by reducing their energy use – and got paid for their efforts.

Note from Zennie62Media’s Zennie62 YouTube and Oakland News Now Today Blog SF Bay Area: this video-blog post demonstrates the full and live operation of the latest updated version of an experimental Zennie62Media , Inc. mobile media video-blogging system network that was launched June 2018. This is a major part of Zennie62Media , Inc.’s new and innovative approach to the production of news media. What we call “The Third Wave of Media”. The uploaded video is from a vlogger with the Zennie62 on YouTube Partner Channel, then uploaded to and formatted automatically at the Oakland News Now site and Zennie62-created and owned social media pages. The overall objective is smartphone-enabled, real-time, on the scene reporting of news, interviews, observations, and happenings anywhere in the World and within seconds and not hours. Now, news is reported with a smartphone: no heavy and expensive cameras or even a laptop are necessary. The secondary objective is faster, and very inexpensive media content news production and distribution. We have found there is a disconnect between post length and time to product and revenue generated. With this, the problem is far less, though by no means solved. Zennie62Media is constantly working to improve the system network coding and seeks interested content and media technology partners.
