Environmental Commissioner Awarded for Commitment to Clean Energy

The City of Encinitas and Environmental Commissioner Awarded for Their Commitment to Clean Energy

ENCINITAS, Calif.; Apr. 21, 2017 – On April 12, the City of Encinitas was honored by the Climate Action Campaign with the Agents of Change Award at the NightCAP Annual Awards Celebration event. The Agents of Change award honors public institutions that move toward 100 percent clean energy and the City of Encinitas earned the distinction for leading the exploration of a possible joint Community Choice Energy program across North County cities.

Forming a Community Choice Energy program could offer residents and businesses a choice in their energy supply for cleaner and renewable sources of electricity.  

“Our community values include being good stewards of the environment,” said Crystal Najera, the City’s Climate Action Program Administrator. “We’re committed to creating opportunities for our residents and business owners to provide their input on how they’d like to see the City move towards sustainable energy. We did just that through the exploration of Community Choice Energy over the past year and through our current efforts to update the City’s Climate Action Plan.”

Jim Wang, an Environmental Commissioner for Encinitas, was also honored with the Unsung Hero award. The Climate Action Campaign awarded Wang for being a champion of bold climate action and persistently pushing forward the Community Choice Energy and Climate Action Plan efforts in Encinitas through his role on the Encinitas Environmental Commission.
