An energy efficiency Ã¢â‚¬Å“best practicesÃ¢â‚¬Â workbook is now available for any community wanting to reduce its energy use, costs, and greenhouse gas emissions. The California Local Energy Efficiency Program (CALeep), funded by the California PUC, published the workbook to address barriers to community-level energy efficiency initiatives and to recognize the
important role local governments can have in meeting state energy efficiency and environmental goals.
The workbook describes a basic five-step processÃ¢â‚¬â€initiate, plan, organize, implement, assessÃ¢â‚¬â€that communities can follow to increase their level of energy efficiency, whether starting from scratch or building on existing energy efficiency activities.
