If you own or manage a small to medium sized business in Thousand Oaks and you're implementing ways to reduce your energy use, you should reap the rewards of becoming a Certified Green Business.
The City of Thousand Oaks has increased its commitment to renewable energy in recent years, including installation of:
- A solar array and co-generation equipment that turns methane produced in the anaerobic digesters, as well as fats, oils and grease collected throughout the City, into energy at the City's wastewater treatment facility. In 2015, the Hill Canyon Treatment Plant became energy neutral.
- Solar lighting at bus shelters; and
- Solar panels at the Conejo Recreation and Park District headquarters building.
