Hi... We got some great news today on the sustainability front! Beaverton was one of just 22 cities nationwide designated a “Smarter City” energy leader by the Natural Resources Defense Council. The selection process began with a list of 655 cities with populations greater than 50,000. The list was whittled down to 22 by comparing carbon dioxide emission reductions, home heating and electricity consumption as well as considering factors such as designation as an EPA Green Power Community. We enjoyed some national coverage as the list ran in USA Today. In addition, KATU and KPTV featured the story in their broadcasts.
