In the past months, wildfires have been burning across the West, producing smoke, ash, and unhealthy air that is affecting us locally in California and even crossing state borders.
As COVID-related restrictions ease, many of us are doing things we haven’t been able to do in a while.
In 2018, BayREN will continue to provide engineering analysis to support local governments with ZNE feasibility for municipal buildings, including assistance with identifying cost-effective ZNE strategies across municipal building types and providing recommendations for specific building retrofits or new construction. This support is intended to encourage local governments to “lead by example” in implementing ZNE and, through that process, to help educate community members and demonstrate ZNE feasibility.
The BayREN Business Plan provides a ten-year vision, with clear goals, strategies, and tactics to increase the access and availability of energy efficiency services to a broad range of ratepayers and sectors, including moderate income residents, multifamily property owners, small and medium commercial businesses, and local governments.
