The Beacon Program, sponsored by the Institute for Local Government and the Statewide Energy Efficiency Collaborative, is a statewide program recognizing California cities and counties that are working to reduce greenhouse gas emissions, save energy and adopt policies and programs that promote sustainability.
The Beacon Program Champion concept recognizes groups or agencies that wish to support and encourage the activities of cities and counties participating in the Beacon Program or considering participation. Since participation in the Beacon Program is limited to cities and counties, the concept of the Beacon Program Champion provides opportunities to recognize the efforts of other groups, such as councils of government, special districts or foundations, that provide sustained assistance to current and future Beacon Program participants.
The Beacon Award is sponsored by the Statewide Energy Efficiency Collaborative, which offers no-cost resources to support the energy and climate initiatives of California local governments. Click here to learn more.
