The State of California's Green Economy: Part 3

GreenBiz Executive Editor Joel Makower joined California State Treasurer Bill Lockyer to discuss the potential for a green boom in the Golden State.

This video offers highlights from a wide-ranging interview in which Lockyer details the policy tools he uses to foster a greener and more prosperous California economy. In this video segment, Lockyer discusses how the state used a little-known financing authority to convince Tesla Motors to locate its headquarters in San Jose, rather than a planned location in New Mexico.

The event took place in September at Hanson Bridgett's Sustainable Business Leadership Forum in San Francisco. Hanson Bridgett, a law firm, hosts the monthly event to explore the opportunities and obstacles posed by a low-carbon economy.

Additional video segments of this discussion will appear in the coming days.
