The proposed Clean Energy Choice Program for New Buildings encourages clean, efficient, and cost effective all-electric new buildings through incentives and local amendments to the California Energy Code. When paired with cost comparable modern electric appliances and carbon-free electricity from Monterey Bay Community Power, all-electric new buildings are operationally greenhouse gas emissions-free, cost effective, and help achieve the community's climate action goals.
The City joins 29 other local governments in California that have already approved policy to encourage or require all-electric new buildings; it is expected that as many as 50 total communities will approve similar policies by the end of 2020.
