Benicia, Corte Madera, El Cerrito, Fairfax, Larkspur, Mill Valley, Richmond, San Pablo and Sausalito are participating in the CoolCalifornia challenge, a statewide competition that encourages residents to collectively lower their community’s carbon footprint. This competition to cut carbon emissions runs from October 1, 2015 – March 30, 2016.
Residents sign up and track their energy use through the My Energy Tool to start earning points for their community. Small steps, like hanging clothes instead of using the dryer, can lead to big carbon reductions! All communities in the challenge will receive prize money based on how many points they earn at the end of the contest.
