This year, Hayward received the 2016 Gold Level Beacon Spotlight Award for a 10% Natural Gas Savings.

As an active participant in the program, Hayward has demonstrated significant achievements through the Beacon Program over the past few years. Each year, cities are able to build on their past achievements with additional sustainability measures.
