Pasadena Named One of the Top-Ten Cleantech Cities in the United States

In an article Monday by Shawn Lesser, Reuters has published its list of the top ten cleantech cities in the U.S. Surprising no one around here, Pasadena made the list, coming in at number 9.  Reuters highlighted Caltech’s influence in the region, including through it partnership with the City of Pasadena to found Entretech, a non-profit dedicated to fostering the growth of hi-tech companies in the Pasadena area.

Ironically, on the solar front, Reuters identified Energy Innovations Solutions as an example of a Pasadena cleantech company, despite its relocation to Poway last summer.  Nevertheless, there is plenty of solar power innovation going on here in Pasadena, and your friends at Run on Sun (somehow overlooked by Reuters!) are leading that charge.

Top-ten in cleantech?  Heck, yeah and just one more reason why we love Pasadena and are committed to making this one of the greenest cities in the world!  If you are a Pasadena building or business owner, give us a shout and let’s get you onboard with the greening of Pasadena.

AB 811 - Progress in Pasadena

The attached memo reports on Pasadena’s progress toward becoming part of the LA County AB 811 program.  The good news is that Pasadena appears to be on-track to start funding solar projects under AB 811 by late Spring or early Summer of next year.  We will be keeping a close eye on this program throughout LA County and will provide updates here on the Founder’s Blog.

If you have questions or comments about the AB 811 program, we would love to see them posted here.  If your city has not yet committed to participating, please let us know and we will work with you to provide materials and support that you can use to spur your city council to get with the program!
