Senate Select Committee on Energy Efficiency - “Accelerating and Expanding Commercial Energy Efficiency Retrofit Activity in California”

Tuesday, December 06, 2011

(Los Angeles, CA) – Continuing his call for a massive expansion of commercial retrofit activity in California, State Senator Kevin de León is convening a hearing of the Select Committee Energy Efficiency to examine California’s shortfall of investment in energy efficiency and to highlight the tremendous opportunity that could create huge gains in energy savings, greenhouse gas emission reductions, and job creation for California’s hard-hit construction industry. A recent study commissioned by the CPUC estimates a need of more than $4 billion per year in capital investment to reach California’s goals.
