SoCalREN Case Study: City of Santa Barbara

The City of Santa Barbara enrolled in the SoCalREN Public Agency Program in June of 2014. Since this time, the City has been able to steadily increase both the number and the complexity of energy efficiency projects. After implementing a series of smaller lighting projects as a proof of concept, the City enthusiastically moved forward with several complex parking garage and street lighting projects that have resulted in tremendous energy and cost savings. Building upon this success, the City has agreed to expedite existing efficiency plans and engage new departments in an effort to advance toward aggressive energy saving goals recently set by the City Council.
