The San Gabriel Valley Energy Champion Awards recognize San Gabriel Valley agencies' efforts for increasing energy efficiency in municipal facilities and engaging in long-term strategic planning for energy efficiency. The goal is to motivate cities, school districts, and special districts to take further actions toward energy efficiency. Cities and agencies must meet thresholds in municipal and community energy efficiency and community outreach in order to achieve recognition levels.


All cities, school districts, and special districts in the San Gabriel Valley are eligible to participate. Details regarding the 2022-2023 Energy Champion Awards' structure can be found below. 


The structure of the 2022-2023 San Gabriel Valley Energy Champion Awards is designed to help cities and agencies execute and receive credit for projects that may surpass a one-year timeline. It follows a progression toward becoming a “champion” in energy efficiency, which is the title of the final recognition tier. Prior to achieving Champion recognition, cities and agencies must first achieve Silver, Gold, then Platinum. Jurisdictions will have until November 9, 2023 to submit proof of completion for their desired recognition level. If you are interested in participating in the Energy Champion Awards please fill out the sign up form here.
