This webinar is the fourth in our 2019 series on the Clean Coalition’s North Bay Community Resilience Initiative (NBCRI), a groundbreaking initiative to provide local governments, developers, and residents in disaster-affected areas with the information and tools they need to rebuild their communities with resilience. Sean Armstrong, Managing Principal of Redwood Energy, and the Clean Coalition’s John Sarter will present.
By the end of 2020, about 40% of Californians will live in a City or County that has passed a local ordinance to phase out natural gas. Whether through incentives or outright bans, these ordinances aim to reduce both post-earthquake fire danger and municipalities’ contribution to climate change. The trend toward all-electric buildings, which began in 1993, extends beyond California to the rest of the US and has gained speed over the last decade as high-quality electric equipment has become available. Sean Armstrong is at the forefront of this trend and has designed thousands of Zero Net Energy residences — all-electric and 100% solar powered.
