The California Statewide Codes and Standards Program is pleased to announce the launch of its new Local Energy Codes Web site: www.LocalEnergyCodes.com. The site will serve as a repository for tools and resources to support local energy efficiency and renewable energy ordinances. Key resources available on the site include cost-effectiveness studies, ordinance summaries for internal communications, model language, and document templates.
In the coming months, the site will also feature replicable real-world examples and success stories of local jurisdictions that have already adopted ordinances, such as the Cities of Fremont and Santa Monica.
LocalEnergyCodes.com also features links to related resources and information, including: implementation partners, the California Building Standards Commission guide detailing the adoption process, information about PV system permitting and sizing, and many other local policy-oriented resources.
Please visit www.LocalEnergyCodes.com to peruse the resources available.
Please contact info@LocalEnergyCodes.com if you have any questions, comments, or feedback about the information on the site, or if there are other local energy policy topics you would like to investigate.
About the C&S Team:
The California Codes and Standards Reach Codes program provides technical support to local governments considering adopting a local ordinance (reach code) intended to support meeting local and/or statewide energy and greenhouse gas reduction goals. The program facilitates adoption and implementation of the code, by providing resources such as cost-effectiveness studies, model language, sample findings, and other supporting documentation. The program is funded by California utility customers and administered by Pacific Gas and Electric Company, San Diego Gas & Electric Company, and Southern California Edison Company under the auspices of the California Public Utilities Commission and in support of the California Energy Commission.
