A SWITZER NETWORK LEADERSHIP STORY

Whole Building Energy Efficiency

Posted by Lauren Hertel on Tuesday, March 5 2013

Fellows: 

2008 Switzer Fellow Beckie Menten is the Energy Efficiency Coordinator for the Marin Energy Authority, the first Community Choice Aggregation (CCA) system in California. Community Choice Aggregation allows cities and counties to aggregate the buying power of individual customers to secure alternative energy supply contracts.  Marin Energy Authority's goal is to address climate change by reducing energy-related greenhouse gas emissions and securing energy supply, price stability, energy efficiencies and local economic and workforce benefits.  Reducing energy demand is a key strategy in reducing greenhouse gas emissions in the progressive county of Marin, California, as Beckie explains in this video.

This video was part of our Spring 2013 Newsletter on Energy Efficiency.  If you'd like to be added to our  mailing list for future issues, please let us know.
