Last night a number of businesses, organizations and individuals in San Diego and Southern California, who made noteworthy energy savings and greenhouse gas reductions in 2011, were honored at the eighth annual Energy All-Star Awards held Thursday, March 22, 2012, at the University of San Diego. The recipients were chosen by the California Center for Sustainable Energy (CCSE) for their contributions in eight different categories. “These award recipients are truly furthering the goals of sustainable energy, each in their own way, by making significant contributions to reducing energy use, adopting renewable energy technologies and using green building technologies,” said Andrew McAllister, CCSE managing director. “Their leadership stands as exemplary models of how California leads the nation in our conversion to a clean energy future.”
The USGCC was nominated in the “Outstanding Sustainable Organization” category. We may not have taken home the award, but there are no losers when it comes to citizens and businesses alike competing to increase sustainable energy and energy education.
Congratulations to our member, Car2Go, on their win in the “Sustainable Transportation” category!
