An Emmy Award-winning documentary airing in Sacramento this weekend features California state employees and their work on alternative energy.

“We’ve Got the Power” will be broadcast this Sunday at 1 p.m. on CBS 13. The show was produced by Professional Engineers in California Government and is the sequel to the union’s 2010 program, “The Next Frontier, Engineering in the Golden Age or Green.”

The latest one-hour show has aired around the country. It outlines a number of fossil-fuel alternatives in California and around the world and the role of government in developing and regulating renewable, non-polluting energy sources.
