In partnership with Marin Clean Energy (MCE), the Operations and Environmental Services Division has been sponsoring El Cerrito’s participation in the Cool California Challenge, which is an annual challenge from October 1 through March 30 by the California Air Resources Board for communities to lower their carbon footprint. This year 21 cities throughout California are participating in the Cool California Challenge, including the cities of Richmond, San Pablo, Martinez and Benicia. Cities that have the most residents earning points on the My Energy Tool will win a share of the $150,000 prize, which can be used to fund sustainability activities.
