LOS ANGELES — GAF Energy was presented with the prestigious “Renewable Energy Leaders Award” by the Los Angeles Business Council (LABC) for the company's contributions toward financing solutions and progressive support for rooftop PV solar projects in the Los Angeles region.
The LABC also recognized the GAF Energy team for bringing financing opportunities within the Los Angeles Department of Water and Power’s (LADWP) Feed-in Tariff, a renewable energy program that allows property owners and developers to generate and sell clean energy to help achieve the city’s renewable energy goals.
“We are honored to receive this award from one of California’s most influential economic and environmental leaders,” said Jason Barrett, vice president of residential and commercial sales for GAF Energy. “LABC has been a critical partner for GAF Energy in the Los Angeles area, helping advocate for innovative public-private partnerships that lead to greater clean energy deployment across the state.”
The award was presented to GAF Energy at the 2020 LABC Sustainability Summit, an annual convening of business, government and nonprofit leaders. The summit seeks to address critical topics like international climate policy, regionalization of the energy grid, and California’s resilience strategy in the face of growing natural disasters.
“The LABC applauds GAF Energy for their ongoing commitment to deliver renewable energy projects to California,” said Mary Leslie, president of the LABC. “Thanks to GAF Energy’s contributions to innovative financing solutions, the Los Angeles area is now experiencing greater solar adoption that supports a healthy economy and a cleaner environment.”
