Green Award for Port of San Diego

By Karen Robes Meeks

The San Diego Regional Clean Cities Coalition recently presented the Port of San Diego with a Green Fleet Leadership Award for the port’s work in its search for alternative fuel options and efforts to curb petroleum use and emissions in the San Diego region.

“We are delighted to be recognized as an environmental champion within the San Diego region by the Clean Cities Coalition,” said Port Chairman Robert “Dukie” Valderrama. “At the port we take our role as protector of the San Diego Bay very seriously and work hard to find innovative ways to reduce our fleet’s environmental impact on the waterfront and the surrounding communities.”

The port was recognized at an awards ceremony at Envision Solar’s Manufacturing Facility in San Diego.
