Event Description

In September 2018, Governor Brown passed Senate Bill 100, that amended the renewable energy goals setting the mark of 100% Renewable Energy by 2045.

This mandate to completely eliminate carbon pollution from California’s electricity generation before the middle of the century is a groundbreaking target for the fifth largest economy in the world. This bill is supported by Senate Bill 700 that reauthorizes the Self-Generation Incentive Program (SGIP), enabling more viable and cost-effective energy storage systems.

As utilities in California prepare to implement this mandate, the focus now shifts to efficiently and cost-effectively integrating renewables,non-carbon emitting power sources and potentially large amounts of energy storage with the state’s existing grid.

The question is how we, as consumers, will be affected and what can we do to support this bill?

Homes steadily become smarter and more connected, as the residential energy customer incorporates popular home gadgets from the Internet-of-Things space: Smart Thermostats, plugs and light bulbs; adding EV Chargers, Home Energy Security, Smart Home Sensors, etc. Homes and automobiles are becoming smarter, more connected and more power “hungry” increasing the electric power customer needs.

Come join the conversation amongst prominent Bay Area leaders in the connected home space, with panelists from OhmConnect, Nest, Bidgely, and Autogrid. Homeowner experience, provider and utility demand-side perspective, and leveraging the smart home space in meeting SB100's clean energy goals will all be covered.
