Linking our personal actions to advancing a grand sustainability strategy is one important way to carry out our citizenship. We can help advance that strategy by transitioning to cleaner energy as soon as possible. The California Energy Efficiency Coordinating Committee will be looking at what it takes to create a movement movement that produces higher rates of applied energy efficiency. You have an opportunity to influence the design and delivery of energy efficiency programs in California by tracking and participating in these efforts.
Those of us who advocate for sustainability and work to find solutions to address the challenges of climate change come from backgrounds as diverse as humanity itself. Some are driven by a belief in the power of technology. Others by more personal reasons — a desire to ensure a healthy future for their children perhaps or right past wrongs. David Gatcha, REV’s director of sales for Orange & Riverside Counties, may fall into the latter.
