While movie studios are "going for the gold" in preparation for Oscar Night, many movie stars are "going for the green." Motivated by their desire to preserve the environment and reduce petroleum dependence, more and more artists in the entertainment industry are using their fame to shine a spotlight on the potential of renewable energy technologies.

"I want to do the right thing for my family and the environment -- and I also want to set a positive example that my friends and colleagues at the film studios can follow." - Daniel Acon, Special Effects Coordinator for "The Passion of The Christ"
