In addition to reducing GHG emissions, the Equitable Building Decarbonization Program will strive to encourage resiliency to extreme heat, improve indoor air quality, improve energy affordability, provide electric grid support, and increase payment of prevailing wage to the implementing workforce. The California Energy Commission (CEC) is currently accepting input on the development and implementation of the Equitable Building Decarbonization Program.
