Is the Bay Area Energy Efficient?
San Francisco is one of the largest consumers of energy in the world today because of one very big reason: It is the second most densely populated city in the US, only after New York City. This makes the Bay Area a hub for activities requiring a humongous energy supply.
Its energy consumption stretches from home energy, industrial energy, fossil fuels, extensive road and air transport, rail transport, and more. In the center of this equation, the staggering question is this.
How efficient is the Bay Area with energy consumption?
A few more questions might include:
- Is the Bay Area keen to adopt green energy?
- Do regulations exist and do they adhere to energy renewing and enacting laws on efficient energy use?
With all the risks that come with inefficient energy use, with environmental hazards and the dangers of climate change at the top of the list, it is imperative that we help answer some of these questions.
How The Bay Area Promotes Energy Efficiency
It’s a fact that homes produce unhealthy amounts of CO2. With that in mind, there are energy efficiency companies, including Synergy Companies, serving the Bay Area that offer Rebate Programs and home energy audits. These are programs and services aimed to promote effective energy conservation, renewals, and avoidance of energy misuse as well as help homeowners save money on their energy bills.
Solar electric and solar thermal products and services are also offered to Bay Area residential and commercial property owners. According to Synergy Companies, “Solar is becoming the trademark of all market leaders because it provides predictable and steady operating expenses.”
When it comes to schools and government facilities, special funding is provided for energy efficiency projects. Government entities qualify for high rebates and incentives to help with solar and other energy investments. Mold, asbestos, and lead paint removal services are also offered.
Ensuring a safe environment is the start to an energy efficient community.
