Gabriel is pleased to announce that we have been named as a Finalist for the 2014 Governor’s Sustainability Award. The Governor’s Award is given to companies and organizations that implement techniques or technologies that reduce or eliminate pollutants, toxicity and other environmental impacts, including the amount of and/or toxicity of pollutants that would have otherwise been released into the environment.
Gabriel made the Finalist list due to our recent solar panel expansion as well as our use of electric cars and hybrid cars. We increased our solar panel array from 36 PV panels to 162 panels, for a total capacity of 42,000 watts (visit our Picasa photo album of the expansion). Our fleet currently features three Prius hybrids, a Nissan Leaf (all electric), Chevy Volt (electric-gas hybrid), and Ford C-Max (electric-gas hybrid).
Winners will be announced on October 23rd, 2014, so stay tuned for another announcement next month!Tags: Illinois Governor's Sustainability Award 2014
