Join Team Tracy in the CoolCalifornia Challenge
What is the CoolCalifornia Challenge?
The CoolCalifornia Challenge is a fun, free, and innovative competition between California cities to reduce their community-wide carbon footprints and build more vibrant and sustainable communities. The competition is based on resident participation, and the winning city will be crowned the Coolest California City and win the grand prize.
Cities participating in the CoolCalifornia Challenge 2012-2013 are: Chula Vista, Citrus Heights, Davis, Gonzales, Pittsburg, Pleasanton, Sacramento, San Jose, Santa Cruz, and Tracy.
The program is run by CoolCalifornia, a collaboration of California state agencies and UC Berkeley.
How you can help Team Tracy
Individuals or households who participate in the Challenge are awarded points for performing green actions, like reducing their energy use or walking and biking more often to reduce driving. For every point you earn, Team Tracy receives a point. With your help, Tracy could be crowned the Coolest California City!
To participate in the Challenge for Team Tracy, visit the CoolCalifornia Challenge website and set up a personalized account. Perform green actions, track your progress, and get points. You even get points for doing the things you are already doing, like turning off lights when not in use, and for doing new things, like installing energy-efficient light bubls throughout the house. There will also be ways to earn bonus points and win prizes from CoolCalifornia, so now, you can get recognition and rewarded for the things you are already doing to live greener!
