SB 350 Low-Income Barriers Study Recommendations Draft Announcement

Cities Encouraged to Provide Feedback, Comments due Dec. 8

December 2, 2016
The California Energy Commission recently (CEC) released its SB350 Low-Income Barriers Study Recommendations.
 
The study examines the challenges to and opportunities for increasing access to energy efficiency, weatherization and renewable energy investments for low-income customers. CEC is soliciting feedback from local government to better understand how to assist and strengthen local government efforts in addressing these barriers.
 
The CEC has worked closely with community members, environmental justice advocates, government agencies and industry leaders on the draft recommendations. These recommendations have implications for local governments, including the development of a pilot program of regional one-stop shops, a new oversight structure and an emphasis on collaboration and involvement from community-based organizations.  
 
Comments on the draft report are due Dec. 8.
 
For questions or more information about the report, please contact Deputy Public Advisor René Macleay Santiago at (916) 654-4489.
