SEED Award for Solar Installation

We just learned that BT Americas has won a SoCal Environmental Excellence Development (SEED) award for our solar installation in El Segundo, Los Angeles. The award program is run by the South Bay Business Environmental Coalition. Our award was in the category of Carbon Footprint Reduction.

I posted about the installation a number of times during construction.

BT is a large global company and has the opportunity to be recognized in large programs such as the Dow Jones Sustainability Index (DJSI). But there is something I find especially rewarding about local recognition such as this. Especially so in El Segundo, where there is a focus on the environment from the City (the award ceremony will be hosted by the Mayor Kelly McDowell) and from the business community. It highlights the connection between local action and global impact.
