Energy Efficiency Infrastructure Projects
The City of Long Beach, Energy Efficiency Team, aims to support increased efficiency in building systems, invest in renewable energy through partnerships and City-owned solar and battery storage, and expand our EV charging network. Through these efforts, they save money, conserve resources, and reduce greenhouse gas emissions.
Working with partner departments such as the Office of Sustainability and Development Services, we ensure our infrastructure work supports City programs such as the Climate Action and Adaptation Plan. The team ensures it tracks legislation to align projects and planning with future state and federal goals.
