Lead Locally

A better energy future for everyone

Leading the way in energy efficiency.

Innovation starts here.

Sonoma Clean Power is partnering with the California Energy Commission to create the Lead Locally program. Lead Locally aims to develop strategies to double the energy efficiency of our community’s existing buildings.

Tested, tried and true.

In the research phase of the program, the Lead Locally team is studying innovative energy-saving equipment and building products in SCP customer homes and businesses. Participant feedback and energy savings will be used to confirm that these technologies work well for the SCP community. The results will provide insight into best practices for installers, and guide future energy-saving programs.

Downtown storefront.

Coming this fall of 2019, SCP will be opening a store in downtown Santa Rosa where SCP customers can test and purchase discounted, high efficiency electric appliances. Currently, we are in the design phase of renovations with completion expected late this summer. Sign up to receive e-mail updates on our progress here.



Current program status: Early 2019

The Lead Locally program received an overwhelming response to our initial Pilot Home recruitment effort in November 2018. Thank you to community members who responded! The program team is reviewing applications and will provide updates to all who expressed interest.

At this time, the team has completed recruitment for homeowners to study phase change materials, radiant ceiling panels, and mini-split heat pumps. In the future, SCP will recruit additional homeowners and businesses to evaluate lighting, heat recovery, and water heating technologies.
