Description

Between January 2018 and October 2019 San Luis Obispo County, funded through a California Energy Commission (CEC) Local Government Challenge grant, determined the technical, financial, and organizational feasibility of converting an existing, low-income neighborhood to zero net energy (ZNE). This included researching existing conditions; assessing energy efficiency and conservation potential; building distributed energy resource (DER) scenarios; determining physical and operational resource requirements; and conducting extensive community outreach and engagement. A small portion of the grant was also used to prepare a protocol compliant greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions inventory update for the county’s EnergyWise Plan.
