Join USGBCMA Tuesday for an Energy Efficiency Hearing in support of the following bills:

Bill H2857 establishes a program within the Department of Public Utilities to educate commercial building managers and operators relative to energy efficiency.

Bill S1761 relates to property sellers being required to go through an energy assessment prior to listing the home for sale. This would set residential buildings on a faster track to improving their energy efficiency, which will lead to decreasing energy costs in the home.

Bill S1771 sets net zero building standards for new residential and commercial buildings to increase energy efficiency by target dates.

Bill S1774 provides property owners access PACE financing at a low-cost, using off-balance sheet capital, by way of betterment lien placed on the property and payable like a property tax bill.
