AB758 Proposed Program Delivery
Phase 2: Market Development & Partnerships (2012 - 2014)
ARRA funded workforce development, financing programs and some energy retrofit programs are expected to sustain past the ARRA funding period into Phase 2. This phase will include development of the energy efficiency assessments and audits, ratings and building labeling, retrofits and building commissioning markets, and continued growth of the clean energy workforce. Energy Efficiency financing products will continue to be developed, and residential and multi-family building ratings and labeling protocols and regulations will be developed. Market development will only succeed with continued and further development of partnerships with public, private and industry partners.
Phase 3: Statewide Ratings & Upgrades Requirements (2014 - 2015)
Building energy use disclosure regulations, and whole house retrofits regulations will be developed and implemented during this Phase. The Energy Commission will face the major challenge, after the ARRA program termination date, of building the most successful aspects of these programs into the AB 758 regulations. The Energy Commission will solicit public input throughout the regulatory process via publicly noticed workshops, meetings and other activities. Following the regulatory process, the Energy Commission will periodically update the program and adopt revisions that in its judgment will improve or refine the program over time.
