Your BOMA San Francisco Advocacy Team attended  Mayor Gavin Newsom's Earth Day Breakfast on April 27, 2010 to recognize the winners from the first first annual San Francisco 24x7 Energy Challenge  (click here for our blog post on the Challenge)--a contest that celebrates the most energy efficient commercial buildings in San Francisco as well as properties that make the greatest gains in energy performance.

Among the winners, the following BOMA San Francisco members were recognized for their energy efficiency efforts:

Mayor Newsom gave the keynote address. His speech focused on what San Francisco has achieved in energy conservation and environmental sustainability--and the 'green' jobs created from these efforts--since the first Earth Day Breakfast in 1999.

BOMA San Francisco would like to congratulate the winners of the Challenge, Mayor Gavin Newsom, San Francisco Department of the Environment Director David Assmann, and all of the Department staff for their dedication in promoting energy efficiency and protecting the environment.
