Two days after dire climate warnings by the International Panel on Climate Change, the California Energy Commission adopts a long-awaited building energy efficiency codeupdate. It is a big step towards slashing 25% of the state’s carbon emissions produced largely by heating and cooling in buildings. Building decarbonization advocates continue to […]
The California Energy Commission unanimously approved a hard fought, cutting edge building energy efficiency code update Aug. 11, a key part being incentives for efficient electric water and space heat pumps in all new residential buildings and some nonresidential ones. The largest share of building energy is from heating systems, with gas-fired systems producing most of the carbon emissions
After months of push me, pull you, the California Energy Commission is posed to adopt the latest update to the state’s building energy efficient code Aug. 11. Gas utility companies, clean air advocates and several other interests have been pushing hard for their preferred provisions in the new code.
Quarterly earnings for Edison International were on par with those of the previous year, at $318 million. Per share earnings were down, at 94 cents per share compared to the second quarter of 2020 at $1/share.

California’s groundbreaking 2016 Distributed Energy Resources Action Plan will be updated to better align rising levels of clean local renewables with ratepayer and society interests, particularly air quality, climate resiliency, and economic opportunities in disadvantaged communities, the California Public Utilities Commission announced July 23.
Going gang busters on clean, distributed energy will go a long way towards lowering utility bills as California works towards a decarbonized grid. In addition, energy efficiency further increases the savings in and outside the state. Those are findings in two reports released July 22.
