This little blurb in the Claremont Courier a few months ago prompted me to help Claremont win the Cool California Challenge which runs from October through March. Residents log in to the website and report energy usage – gas, electricity and odometer readings. Claremont is currently in first place, but I have no idea what a winning prize will be. Twenty-two cities are in the competition, and 215 Claremonters have signed up.
Our solar panels, plug-in hybrid, and the energy retrofit we did have helped us reduce our carbon footprint.
