SF Energy Watch Contractor/Vendor Appreciation Breakfast
Another successful and fun gathering celebrating contractors and vendors participating in the SF Energy Watch program! See photo gallery here.
Debbie Raphael, Director of SF Environment, emphasized the importance of partnerships to reach the City’s 0, 50, 100, and Roots goals. We aim for zero waste, 50% of trips made through sustainable means, 100% renewable energy paired up with energy efficiency. ‘Roots’ means increasing and protecting our urban green spaces in San Francisco.
Without a doubt, participating program contractors and vendors are part of San Francisco’s sustainability story. Thanks to their hard work, a total of 305 energy efficiency projects have been installed and almost $1 million in incentives have been paid out through SF Energy Watch this year. Their labor stimulates the local economy and ensures that energy efficiency upgrades are affordable, accessible, simple, and increasingly comprehensive for all San Franciscans.
SF Environment also acknowledged ICF for their excellent administrative support and program coordination in a 10-year partnership. Contractors and vendors will continue to receive support for their SF Energy Watch projects through a similar contract with NAM/Ecology Action. Program staff look forward to working with the new team to implement positive change in the years to come.
SF Energy Watch, a public-private partnership between the City of San Francisco and Pacific Gas and Electric Company, offers contractors financial incentives for qualified energy efficiency services. Learn how to become a participating contractor here.
San Francisco is habitat for 800,000 people – meeting needs for space to work, play, and learn; for food, water, and air; for community with local flora and fauna. SF Environment provides support for urban agriculture and forestry and green buildings, helping residents and businesses harness environmental opportunities.
