Support Affordable and Efficient Energy

Urge CA Energy Commission to vote YES on key update

California’s energy laws are designed to reduce wasteful and unnecessary energy consumption in both new and existing buildings and to advance climate goals for the state. The California Energy Commission (CEC) updates the building energy efficiency standards known as Title 24 every three years, working with stakeholders in a public and transparent process. After more than a year and a half of input, the latest revision is up for a vote on Wednesday, August 11.

Send a message to the California Energy Commission urging them to adopt a climate-safe statewide building code.

This year’s update is a landmark step in creating affordable and energy efficient housing that enables Californians to be more resilient to the impacts of climate change. If adopted, it will be the first in the nation to include highly efficient electric heat pump technology as a baseline for new homes. Although this is not the all-electric standard that The Climate Center supported, it is a significant step toward accelerating building electrification nationwide and beyond. 

We expect there will be vocal opposition from powerful opponents including the fossil gas industry, manufacturer and building industry trade groups, and some labor unions at the public meeting on August 11. We need your voice to ensure a climate-safe statewide building code.
