WASHINGTON, DC--(Marketwire - Aug 24, 2011) - Internet TV Network, TV Worldwide (www.TVWorldwide.com), recently completed production and launch of a training video on home installation and inspection requirements for Electric Vehicle Supply Equipment (EVSE). The video was created for Clean Cities TV (CCTV, www.CleanCities.TV), the educational Internet TV channel the company produces, in support of the U.S. Department of Energy's (DOE) Clean Cities program. The video provides vital information for electrical contractors and inspectors as they assist homeowners in ensuring that proper residential EVSE standards, practices and safety precautions are followed.
The video is part of a series of live and recorded educational Internet programs on the Clean Cities TV channel. CCTV was launched in April to support Clean Cities and its mission to reduce U.S. petroleum consumption through the use of alternative and renewable fuels, idle reduction, fuel economy measures, and new emerging technologies.
The new EVSE video features input from experts who have been engaged in the development of standards and specifications for proper design and installation of EVSEs. These approaches are customized to support a full spectrum of residential applications.
"Proper EVSE installation is so vital to the national goal to get 1 million electric vehicles on the road by 2015, so it is very rewarding to support this effort, deploying our Internet TV capabilities to educate and inform," stated Dave Gardy, Chairman and CEO of TV Worldwide. "Clean Cities continues to be successful at implementing vital alternative fuel and petroleum-reduction technologies at the municipal level, and content like this on Clean Cities TV is the answer to cost-effectively communicating the best practices from these strategies so all cities, their stakeholder partners, and the public can benefit."
TV Worldwide's network of Internet TV channels currently offers several different target demographic audiences, including the National League of Cities TV (www.NLCTV.org), produced in cooperation with the National League of Cities. "We're making sure that viewers on other channels such as our NLC TV audience of 22,000 city decision makers in 1,600 member cities are aware of this content, not only from the standpoint of what constituents need to know about residential installations, but also because of the future decisions city leaders need to make in deploying charging installations at the municipal level. We're learning that across all alternative fuel technologies, once cities know about Clean Cities program solutions that have been deployed successfully, they find real savings -- an important consideration in this time of tight municipal budgets," Gardy said.
Visitors to CCTV (www.CleanCities.TV) can view the new EVSE video under the 'Electric Drive Vehicle Training' link under the 'Training' Section of the Channel.
