At a ceremony in San Francisco today, Real Goods former President and Founder John Schaeffer accepted the Green Power Leadership Award for Leadership in Green Power Education from the Center for Resource Solutions (CRS) on behalf of himself, the Solar Living Institute, and Real Goods.
The annual Green Power Leadership Awards are presented by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency, in conjunction with the CRS. The Leadership in Green Power Education award is given to programs and organizations that focus on increasing the use of renewable energy and spreading the word about its environmental benefits.
John's work in green power education includes the Solar Living Center, a 12-acre living and working demonstration of renewable energy and permaculture he built on a former Caltrans dumping ground, and the Solar Living Institute, an educational nonprofit with a mission to promote sustainable living through inspirational environmental education.
