CEC Workshop 8/12: Barriers to Low-Income Communities Accessing Energy Efficiency and Renewable Energy (To Include in SB 350 Barriers Study)


The California Energy Commission will conduct a workshop to gather input on barriers faced by low-income and disadvantaged communities to investing in energy efficiency and weatherization, installing solar photovoltaic and other renewable generating resources, and contracting opportunities for small businesses. This input will be included in the “Senate Bill 350 Barriers Study,” required by the Clean Energy and Pollution Reduction Act of 2015 (De Le6n, Chapter 547, Statutes of 2015).

Energy Commission Chair Robert B. Weisenmiller will preside over the discussion and will be joined by Commissioners Karen Douglas, David Hochschild, Andrew McAllister, and Janea Scott. Commissioners and executive officers of other agencies may also attend and participate in the workshop. A quorum of commissioners from the Energy Commission will be in attendance and a quorum of commissioners from the California Public Utilities Commission may attend, but no votes will be taken. The workshop will be held:

Friday, August 12, 2016
