CoolCalifornia.org aims to empower Californians to improve the State’s future and protect its environment.

CoolCalifornia.org is THE new one-stop-shop for all Californians – packed with quick, easy-to-use and reliable tools that all Californians need to save money and reduce their impact on the planet.  Resources have been developed for specific audiences: to help small businesses, households and individuals save money as they lower their carbon footprint. We also have resources for towns and cities, and a special section for schools. Tool and resources on the site include:

  • California-specific Carbon Footprint Calculators – for households and small businesses.
    • Users can quickly estimate carbon footprints;
    • Compare their results to similar users (California, U.S. and world-wide)
    • And, pledge to take action with customizable actions to reduce their carbon footprint
  • Money Saving Actions –tips and strategies in the areas of energy efficiency, transportation, green building, water use, waste reduction, and more!
  • Financial Resources – rebate and incentive information for climate-related projects offered throughout the state.
  • Success Stories – real life examples of local governments and small businesses who have already successfully and profitably reduced their environmental impact.
  • Social Networking – follow us on Facebook and Twitter to get up-to-date tips, news, and rebates

The founding partners include State Government Agencies, Academics and a nonprofit organization.  But CoolCalifornia.org is designed for the people of California, and many Californians have provided input that shaped the site.
