Together, the 2014 Cool Planet Award recipients have saved nearly 100 million kilowatt-hours since January 2010 through the implementation of various SCE energy efficiency projects. This is equivalent to removing the annual greenhouse gas emissions from over 14,000 passenger vehicles. In addition, the Award recipients actively participate in numerous SCE Demand Response programs, which provide incentives for them to reduce their electricity use during peak electrical demand periods. This integrated demand side energy management approach provides both environmental and economic benefits to businesses and local governments in Southern California.

“While the nations of the world grapple with the challenges of global climate change, Cool Planet Award recipients are taking meaningful action every day as they strive to make their organizations more energy efficient, cost effective and competitive,” said David Rosenheim, Executive Director of The Climate Registry.

Thank you to all SCE business customers who submitted applications for the 2014 Cool Planet Award.
