Coolest city in California?

Sacramento joins a competition to be the greenest city in California.

Sacramento is currently in a 12-month-long battle to have the cleanest carbon footprint.

The city, along with five others in the state, is participating in the inaugural Cool California Challenge. The California Air Resources Board kicked off the competition on April 1, and the year-long contest will try to make city residents do such things as turn off their air conditioners in 100-degree weather and bike instead of drive when the air-quality goes orange.

Anyway, CARB gave the city a cool grand as seed money to kickstart the program’s outreach; you can find out how to participate at
