CoolCalifornia Cities ChallengeRelease Date: 2014-05-19
In its pilot year (2012 - 2013), the program enrolled 2,670 participants in 8 participating cities and reduced over 225 metric tons of CO2equivalent greenhouse gas emissions, equivalent to taking 95 California homes off the electrical grid for a year.
Participants in ‘the Challenge’ earn points for reducing their household energy use and transportation emissions. Every point earned by participants counts as a raffle ticket toward local prizes and increases the city’s rank in the statewide standings. Program sponsors provide prize money and rewards for participating cities, helping to support local sustainability efforts.
