Energy Committee

oilThe Ventura Chamber of Commerce Energy Committee is comprised of people and companies representing a diverse group of energy-related resources and perspectives. One of the main goals of this committee is to work to enhance public awareness of the importance of the energy industry to the local economy and quality of life. This committee provides a forum for identifying and discussing common issues affecting the production and consumption of energy.

The Chamber promotes the development and availability of many sources of energy and conservation measures in an environmentally responsible and cost-effective way as well as continued access to dependable, existing resources. The energy industry is critical to our economy and we need policies that promote the continued production and expansion of current and new energy resources in addition to the infrastructure to meet our increasing energy demands.

The Energy Committee meets the 4th Thursday of each month at 9am. Please contact Stephanie Caldwell for more information: (805) 643-7222 or stephanie@ventura-chamber.org.
