New Solar Homes Partnership Workshop Agenda
The California Energy Commission Renewables Committee will conduct a workshop to discuss the design of the New Solar Homes Partnership on June 12, 2006. The purpose of this workshop is to solicit comments from interested parties on the Draft Staff Proposal on the New Solar Homes Partnership (Draft Staff Proposal). Notice of the workshop was publicly circulated on May 13, 2006, but did not include a workshop agenda. A tentative agenda is now available and may be obtained along with the Draft Staff Proposal and Workshop Notice from the California Energy Commission (Energy Commission) Web site .
The Energy Commission is developing the New Solar Homes Partnership, a solar incentive program for new residential construction. The primary goal of the New Solar Homes Partnership is to help create a self-sustaining market for energy-efficient, new solar homes. Additional goals include home builders incorporating high levels of energy efficiency and high-performing solar systems as standard features and home buyers demanding energy-efficient, solar homes. The Energy Commission intends to provide financial incentives and non-financial assistance in the form of builder and market support to help create this self-sustaining market.
