Energy Efficiency Requirements, Services, and Incentives for New Construction

Energy and Sustainability Rebuild Consultations

County of Sonoma Energy and Sustainability Services for Residents (also for City of Santa Rosa) »

The Energy Division offers free consultations to City and County residents and their builders who are preparing their permit apps to ensure that their permit applications will meet or exceed current energy efficiency standards.  Call for an appointment or for more info 707.565.6470.

Attached are Slides describing the free services offered by the Energy Division for County and Santa Rosa homeowners, as well as information on current energy efficiency.  From what I understand, full-service architects, contractors, and design-build builders should be engaging the Energy Analysts and HERS raters and other professionals described in the Slides; that is, homeowners do not necessarily need to identify and engage these professionals themselves.  But it is good to know who should be on your rebuilding team and what their qualifications should be.

Also, there are free high-performance residential new construction training seminars scheduled to be held in Santa Rosa over the next few months.  Share the info and flyers linked below with homeowners to share with their builders, architects, designers, contractors, etc.
