EFFORTS WIN 2013 ENVIRONMENTAL INITIATIVE AWARD
Harnessing the power of collaboration, EIC partners avoided more than 1.8 billion lbs of CO2 emissions since 2010 through their collective energy efficiency, renewable energy, smart technology and transportation efforts. That’s the equivalent to removing more than 173,000 cars from the road.
The EIC is an area located along the planned central corridor light rail and is a showcase of energy efficiency, renewable energy, transportation and smart technology.
The Energy Innovation Corridor extends approximately one-quarter mile on either side of the proposed 11-mile Central Corridor light rail transit project route.
The Energy Innovation Corridor will encourage the use of renewable energy and energy efficiency, deploy large-scale solar systems, develop infrastructure for plug-in hybrid vehicles, and demonstrate the capabilities of emerging energy technologies.
