The 5th annual Southern California Energy Summit produced by Brian Rix and Josh Zipperman of Burke Rix Communications proved to be a huge success with three events and over 550 attendees united together to promote the region as the epicenter of renewable energy. On Thursday October 3rd, guests gathered for the Energy Summit Welcome Reception combined with the Dedication Ceremony for the CPV Sentinel Energy Project. Over 200 people attended the event held under a big tent at the power plant in Desert Hot Springs. The power plant essentially became the décor for the party serving as a unique backdrop through clear tent panels.  At the Palm Springs Convention Center the following day keynote speaker Daryl Hannah lead an impressive lineup of speakers focused on powering a regional clean energy economy.
