On September 13, 2016, IREC honored national award winners for the Best of 2016 in renewable energy and energy efficiency. Celebrating 23 years of recognizing exemplary people, projects and programs, this year’s winners are in five categories, three of which are People’s Choice Awards, selected by more than 1,000 online voters. IREC 3iAward recipients were honored during an awards ceremony at Solar Power International, at the Las Vegas Convention Center.

“Through IREC’s 3iAwards – celebrating Innovation, Ingenuity and Inspiration – we’re proud to recognize programs, projects and individuals leading the way to a cleaner energy future,” said IREC Board Chair Larry Shirley. “Their work is creating solutions to today’s complex renewable energy and energy efficiency challenges – changing the national energy conversation and our communities in the process,” added Ken Jurman, IREC board member and chair of the 3iAwards Committee.

“They are among our nation’s most gifted energy trailblazers making a very real difference,” said IREC President/CEO Larry Sherwood. “It’s an honor to celebrate these visionary accomplishments and encourage others to be inspired by their successes.”
