Presentation of PG&E Zero Net Energy Residential Project Consultations

On behalf of PG&E, Resource Refocus coordinated a presentation of the results of zero net energy (ZNE) residential project consultations on March 27, 2014, in Berkeley, CA.

The projects were presented by the technical consultant teams engaged by PG&E to assist project teams in designing and/or monitoring their ZNE projects. In addition, a residential program manager highlighted upcoming changes to residential PG&E incentive programs, and the CPUC provided an overview of the larger statewide ZNE residential issues and goals. 

The presentations and case study handouts from the event are available here.
