(Victor Valley)– The Climate Registry has recognized VVWRA with their Cool Planet Award for exemplary leadership in energy and carbon management.
The award was presented to VVWRA General Manager Logan Olds during a ceremony at the Huntington Library in San Marino. The event celebrated Southern California Edison’s business customers and their commitment to installing energy efficiency projects, participating in demand response programs, and implementing environmental and GHG management systems. VVWRA has been an industry leader in innovative approaches to green energy production. VVWRA’s “waste to energy” program uses naturally occuring methane produced by the waste we are treating to generate electricity.
VVWRA is currently producing more than 70 percent of its energy needs through the program with the goal of becoming completely energy neutral and even export electricity back on to the grid in the future.
