Virtue, they say, is its own reward, especially when it comes to standing up for California's environment. But a little recognition along the way sure can't hurt.

That's why we're happy to announce that, on Aug. 20, the Center for Energy Efficiency and Renewable Technologies (CEERT) named Environment California's Dan Jacobson a Clean Power Champion. CEERT selected Dan for the award based on his success in leading the 2018 campaign to pass SB 100, the law that put California on the path to 100% clean electricity by 2045; and for his leadership in the passage of dozens of bills, including California’s Climate Solutions Act.

“I’m honored to be selected as a Clean Power Champion by CEERT,” said Dan. “The passage of SB 100 was a historic victory for clean energy in California and it’s encouraging to see other states follow our lead, but there’s still a lot of work to be done.”
