CA blackouts keep PR in the spotlight

SAN FRANCISCO: California's ongoing energy crisis continues to serve up work for the state's major PR players. Edelman's Sacramento office has inked deals to represent two new clients with ties to the power shortage saga: Alliance for Retail Energy Markets, a coalition of nine alternative energy providers, and Duke Energy, an out-of-state power generator company with plants and investments throughout California. Both organizations tapped Edelman for strategic communications, issues management and legislative support.

Other new clients to be handled jointly by the San Francisco and Sacramento offices include the California Rice Commission; InterMune Pharmaceuticals, which develops treatments for infectious diseases and cancer; the California Healthcare Foundation's new Health-e-App system; and NRE World Bento, a Bay Area-based manufacturer of Japanese bento box meals.
