This six-part webinar series, recorded earlier in 2023 as a joint effort by PG&E and Electrify My Home, is now available on YouTube.
The series highlights the tremendous business opportunities, the vital role of efficiency, and lessons learned from the home electrification field. Incentives, financing, and training programs are all essential elements for assisting policymakers, building professionals, and homeowners achieve Climate Action Plan goals.
Session topics include:
Webinars can be viewed as a series or individually for specific topics. They can be included in educational outreach programs for local jurisdictions or for internal training programs.
Other electrification and efficiency resources are also available from Southern California Edison (SCE) and San Diego Gas & Electric. SCE maintains a comprehensive Home Efficiency Guide while SDG&E provides extensive resources through its Electrify Your Home webpage hub.

The reach codes program is updating the residential fact sheet with a comprehensive overview of the new 2022 CALGreen requirements for EV charging for all new construction.
Updated EV charging requirements include:
The statewide Reach Codes Program has developed new model ordinance language for jurisdictions considering an EV charging measure based on these intervening cycle changes.
California Plumbing Code (CPC) Appendix A is based on the UPC Appendix A model code, which is based on engineering rules first developed in the 1940s. UPC Appendix M Peak Water Demand Calculator offers an alternative methodology for sizing water pipes in new single family and multifamily buildings.
This alternative methodology will result in construction cost savings (on the order of $600-$1,200 per apartment for multifamily buildings) as well as operational cost savings over the life of the building. These include:
The statewide team has published a Study and Executive Summary documenting these savings.
The BSC has adopted two amendments to CALGreen that reduce embodied carbon emissions in commercial buildings over 100,000 sq feet and school projects over 50,000 sq ft in both adaptive reuse and new construction projects.
Specific mandatory provisions include:
BSC has published guidance related to these new provisions, which is available here.
