SEEC Cohort Training Session

Is your city or county planning to complete or update a climate action plan, sustainability plan or energy action plan? The 2018 CAP Cohort Training Session is a structured technical-assistance program to guide California local governments to scope out and be well prepared to develop their CAP. The Training Session is available through the SEEC program at no cost to local governments.

The 14-week Session will run from the Week of July 30 through November 9, 2018. Participants should not expect to complete their CAP during the cohort session; rather, they will complete the training with a clear scope for what their CAP will focus on and cover, an understanding of how to use the SEEC ClearPath tool to support their CAP, and a clear set of next steps.

Topics covered will include: Deciding your community's goals for the plan; conducting vulnerability assessments; community engagement and equity; using the SEEC ClearPath tool to forecast emissions change, develop high-level scenarios, and to analyze specific actions; defining metrics and monitoring; and thinking about local government influence, internal capacity and community partners.

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

CEC Building Energy Benchmarking Webinar (AB 802)
 
In October of 2015, the State of California passed Assembly Bill 802, directing the California Energy Commission to establish the Building Energy Benchmarking Program. The Program requires owners of buildings larger than 50,000 square feet with either no residential utility accounts or 17 or more residential utility accounts to benchmark and disclose their buildings' energy performance through ENERGY STAR Portfolio Manager. The purpose of the program is to help building owners better understand their energy consumption through standardized energy use metrics that enable smarter and more cost-effective improvements in building energy use.

For more information about the program, join us for an introductory webinar.
