Statewide LG EE Best Practices: Weekly Update

SEEC Registration Open!



9th Annual Statewide Energy Efficiency Forum

The Annual Statewide Energy Efficiency Forum will be offered at no-cost for local government staff and officials, and will provides over 300 participants with the opportunity to connect with state leaders, learn about new strategies and best practices, and network with peers from across the state.



California's Solar Mandate for New Homes

The California Energy Commission adopted building standards that require solar photovoltaic systems on new home construction starting in 2020. Click here to find more information from the Califonia Energy Commission.
 

In the headlines...

1.  We shouldn't require solar on new residential construction, utility-scale renewables is a better alternative
2.  We should wait, more research/discussion is needed
3.  The timing is right and California will be a model for the rest of the country
