The City of Fremont has launched a new residential climate action engagement platform called the Fremont Green Challenge. The Fremont Green Challenge website offers residents all the information they need to save energy, water, and money, all while reducing their impact on climate change!
By setting up a personal account and completing a brief household profile, you’ll get custom savings and impact estimates for actions you can take related to energy efficiency, water conservation, clean transportation, renewable energy systems, food, and waste. Actions range from easy to challenging, and help you lower your impact in simple, fun, and cost-effective way. You’ll also find links to local incentive programs such as the exciting new SunShares solar and clean vehicle discount program.
For every action you complete, you will earn points that are directly attributable to the amount of carbon emissions you have reduced. You can then combine your points with other Fremont households by forming a team with your friends and neighbors and affiliating with your local school or community organization to compete for top Green Challenge rankings! Leading households, teams, and affiliations will be recognized for their achievements on the Challenge Leaderboard and highlighted through success stories.
The Fremont Green Challenge will prove how innovative our community can be at reducing the impacts of climate change, bringing us one step closer to taking home the $5 Million Georgetown University Energy Prize. To learn more and get started, visit the Fremont Green Challenge.
