Ventura Solar Workshop

As Californians, we’re all too familiar with the term “rolling blackouts”. These occur when our power grids become overworked. Earlier this year, PG&E announced that they believed their equipment caused the 2018 Camp Fire. A combination of dry vegetation, lack of precipitation, and the Santa Ana winds spurred the Woolsey Fire on. To deter possible fire outbreaks, PG&E plans to implement rolling blackouts. Other utilities may follow suit. If you don’t want to be caught without power, consider solar power. Attend a Ventura solar workshop to find out more about it.

Never worry about rolling blackouts again. Attend the free Ventura Solar Workshop on July 11th to find out about installing solar panels and storage equipment at your home.

Ventura Solar Workshop

Search Ventura County homes for saleJust last week, the City and the CEC (Community Environmental Council) hosted their very first Ventura solar workshop. They scheduled their second (and last) one for next month. This free workshop provides education on how solar power works for residences. They also make it much more affordable for people to install solar panels on their homes through the Solarize Ventura 2019 program.

Solarize Ventura 2019 gives Ventura area residents both education on and storage equipment for solar power when they decide to sign up for the program. Current solar users receive newer storage equipment as well through the program. This equipment allows a place for unused solar power gathered throughout the day to be stored up for use at night. When residents access that power instead of the more expensive electrical power from the city’s power grid, it lessens the strain on the grid. Additionally, it lowers your electrical bill and reduces the chances of equipment failure that may cause future fires.

For those residents still rebuilding after the 2017 Thomas Fire, the Solarize Ventura 2019 program easily integrates into new construction plans. It also works on recently completed construction. No matter how far along you are in the rebuilding process, officials would love for victims of the Thomas Fire to attend their Ventura solar workshop to learn all about the solar power and equipment available to them.

You don’t need a reservation to attend the workshop. Simply show up at City Hall on July 11th. They plan on holding the meeting in the Community Meeting Room at 5:30 pm. For more information about the program itself, contact Lars Davenport, Environmental Specialist at (805) 652-4595. He’ll be happy to tell you all about it.

Ventura Saturday Fisherman’s Market: It’s What’s for Dinner!

Living on the Pacific Ocean coastline means that Southern Californians enjoy the freshest fish available. Since 1982, Andrea’s Seafood Restaurant has served residents and visitors to this beloved Ventura County hotspot. Their clam chowder and hand battered fish and chips made them a worldwide phenomenon. But that’s just two of the reasons Andrea’s consistently ranks #1 as Ventura’s best fresh seafood market. So, it should come as no surprise that their Ventura Saturday Fisherman’s Market brings in seafood lovers by the droves.

Every week, Andrea's Seafood Restaurant hosts the Ventura Saturday Fisherman's Market. Several local fisherman sell their fresh fish catches of the day, first come/first served, from 7 am until 10 am (or until sold out). Free parking available.

Search Ventura County homes for saleStarting at 7 am every Saturday morning, the ocean side of Andrea’s Seafood Restaurant becomes the Saturday Fisherman’s Market. Only the freshest caught seafood winds up here for the public to purchase. Several local fishermen set up booths filled with fresh fish, clams, mussels, crab, and more. Whatever seafood you crave for your Saturday evening meal with the family is on display here.

Some of the fish up for grabs most Saturdays includes sea bass, tuna, halibut, rockfish, and even sea cucumbers. Since the selection depends solely on what is freshly caught, it varies from week to week. People from all over Ventura and Los Angeles Counties make the trek to Ventura harbor every Saturday for this market in particular. Most of it tends to sell out before the market ends. So, we suggest getting there as early as possible.

Admission to the market is absolutely free. So is the parking. The market operates on a first come/first served basis. Once the fish runs out, you’ll be out of luck. However, Andrea’s operates its fish market inside the restaurant every single day. If you miss out on their Saturday Fisherman’s Market, go inside Andrea’s to pick up your fresh seafood. The interior market stays open from 11 am to 5 pm Sunday through Thursday and 11 am to 6 pm every Friday and Saturday.
