We created the Clean Energy Connection to connect homeowners with the contractors that do clean energy project work. Ultimately, this will help California reach its carbon emission reduction goals, but we want you to know a little more about what qualifies as a "clean energy" project!
What Is Clean Energy?
Clean energy is energy generated from carbon-free sources and does not create greenhouse gas emissions when used. New regulations require that 100% of electricity generation in California come from zero-carbon sources by 2045. Examples of clean energy generation include solar PV (photovoltaics), wind, geothermal, and hydroelectric power. California is expanding its adoption of clean energy generation and promoting energy-saving measures to help meet the State’s ambitious goal.
Why Should I Consider Including a Clean Energy Measure in My Home Improvement Project?
For California to meet its carbon reduction goals, we all need to address the energy used in "the built environment." By including clean energy measures in your home improvement or new home construction project, you will be doing your part to help the local and global environment. You may also save money on future energy costs while supporting California's clean energy workforce!
