    USGBC Arizona Chapter Green Champion Jason Laros

     
    Jason Laros has been working on energy efficiency in Tucson since he was an undergraduate at the University of Arizona. As an intern and later as an employee at Al Nichols Engineering, Jason helped develop many local energy and sustainability projects. He spent several years monitoring energy and water audits of the community of Civano to help develop the Sustainable Energy Standard in Tucson. He went on to co-author Inside the Civano Project: A Case Study of Large-Scale Sustainable Neighborhood Development,” a book on the process of planning and building the first Tucson community based on sustainability and solar energy use. In the midst of the Civano project, Jason became one of the founding members of the Southern Branch (now the Sonoran Branch) of USGBC – Arizona, and he served as the first chair of the branch’s membership committee. 

    After devoting himself to energy managment in the private and nonprofit worlds, Jason has moved into the government arena. In January, he became the energy manager for the City of Tucson. Along with other City employees, Jason now is working to create an electronic system to monitor and ultimately reduce the City’s energy use, potentially saving the City millions of dollars and reducing its carbon footprint.

    Jason is a LEED AP O+M and a Certified Energy Manager (CEM). He also has a master’s degree in project management. Now, as he has throughout his career, Jason is working to help Tucsonans understand how energy efficiency can impact their community and protect the environment. As a token of our appreciation of his long commitment to USGBC and sustainability, we are happy to announce that Jason is our Green Champion of the Month.

    Nominated by Pamela Portwood
