A UC San Diego graduate student is researching "frontier"
energy efficiency policies. They are focused on how cities use existing
inspection processes to promote energy efficiency upgrades and deter
low-performing or unpermitted improvements. Please contact me at email@example.com
if you are willing to share your experience for this research project.
