Internet TV Network, TV Worldwide (, 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 (, 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.
