Claremont competes for CoolCalifornia City
Claremont residents are being called on to help the City of Trees make the list in the 2014 CoolCalifornia City Challenge, statewide competition supported by the State of California Air Resources Board to motivate and reward residents for reducing their city’s household energy and motor vehicle emissions.
Participating households are entered in drawings for great prizes. The more points the household has earned, the greater their chances of winning. In addition, funding of up to $100,000 will be provided to the cities that get the most residents to sign up before Friday, May 30. City and Sustainable Claremont officials encourage residents to take part in the challenge by registering at www.coolclimate.berkeley.edu/challenge/. The competition lasts five months and ends on August 31.
