Lead Locally

A better energy future for everyone.

Sonoma Clean Power partnered with the California Energy Commission to create the “Lead Locally” program. Lead Locally developed strategies to decarbonize and increase the energy efficiency of our community’s existing buildings.

Through the Lead Locally program, Sonoma Clean Power offered proven energy-saving and electrification equipment to participating pilot homes to gather research. The research provided valuable feedback and data to help provide insight into best practices for manufacturers and installers, educate our community about how energy upgrades can reduce utility bills, and help guide future Sonoma Clean Power programs.

The Lead Locally program also focuses on technology deployment activities through the Sonoma Clean Power Advanced Energy Center.

More information and research documentation from the applied research projects can be reviewed below.
