Avon, Minnesota – Blattner Company has been selected as The Cleanie Awards® Silver place winner for the 2021 Company of the Year (Enterprise).
The Cleanie Awards is the leading awards program celebrating people and brands driving the clean energy economy. The program recognizes innovation excellence and business leadership. Individuals and organizations across many facets of the industry submitted nominations.
This award, judged by industry peers, signifies how influential Blattner is in powering a cleaner, healthier and more vibrant world for all of us. Blattner recently celebrated an industry milestone of 50,000 installed megawatts of wind and solar power, which is enough clean energy to power 14 million households or 1 billion light bulbs. The carbon emissions saved is the equivalent of removing 21 million cars off the road and will prevent 51 billion gallons of water from being used for traditional fossil fuel energy creation. That impact will only continue to grow as Blattner continues to build additional solar and wind power.
“We are extremely proud to recognize this year’s innovators, influencers and advocates, who work tirelessly to champion the clean energy transition in what will be a decisive decade,” said Randee Gilmore, executive director, The Cleanie Awards. “We continuously see nearly a triple-digit increase in the number of submissions year over year, which demonstrates industry growth and the desire for a comprehensive amplification platform for climate solutions.”
