Commercial and Residential Energy Opportunities

There are two energy savings related opportunities that we wanted to make sure that the Goleta community was aware of. The first is an upcoming webinar for homeowners hosted by 3C-REN discussing the benefits of home electrification and heat pumps, and the second is the County of Santa Barbara’s Energy Assurance Services program for commercial building owners. Please see the details below to learn more!

Calling all homeowners in the Tri-Counties!

Learn how you can implement affordable energy efficiency and electrification upgrades for a healthier, climate-friendly home. Register for 3C-REN’s regional forum “What is the Big Deal About Heat Pumps and Electrification?” on Wednesday, March 30th from 5:30-6:30pm. 

Attendees will learn about the value of electrification for their homes and how new technologies can help improve home health and comfort. There will be special focus on heating and cooling systems that utilize heat-pump technologies. Speakers will highlight the challenges and opportunities created by energy efficiency and electrification through case studies, testimonials, and state incentives. Those interested can register now.

County of Santa Barbara Offers Free (or No Cost) Energy Assurance Services

The County of Santa Barbara has launched an Energy Assurance Services (EAS) program to provide free technical assistance for commercial facility owners to increase energy efficiency and energy resilience on the Central Coast. Commercial building owners in Goleta interested in free energy benchmarking, audits, and resilience evaluation can qualify for assessment services that will help participants prepare for funding opportunities from utilities and state agencies. The County’s EAS program provides support with everything from surveying the risks of power loss to your operations to conducting technical assessments for solar and batteries.
