Cool California Challenge

This little blurb in the Claremont Courier IMG_0448a 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.

  1. Glad to have the reminder about CHERP. We have a CHERP sign and we try our best to keep our heater or air conditioner set at a comfortable but not too high or too low temp. I don’t think we’re entering any of our data. Hmmm. Will have to check on that.
