Greenhouse Gas Equivalencies Calculator — Calculate your Greenhouse Gas Emissions footprint from your energy use using Cool California’s calculator.
The City of Palm Springs ‘Your Sustainable City’ program is an ENERGY STAR PARTNER! We have set a pledge goal of 50,000 ENERGY STAR pledges for 2009-2010 to illustrate the positive environmental impact of total pledges collected from City of Palm Springs residents and visitors. Our goal is based on two factors: the number of individuals we will inspire to take the pledge, and the average pounds of greenhouse gas emissions that one person will save by taking the ENERGY STAR Pledge. This also provides an estimate of the greenhouse gas emissions savings that we may be able to collect based on 50,000 pledges. Sign the City of Palm Springs Official ENERGY STAR PLEDGE

178,000,000 lbs. of greenhouse gas emissions is our reduction goal for the community for 2009-2010
