Grid Integration of ZNE Communities (Fontana)
The State of California has set ambitious targets for greenhouse gas (GHG) reduction goals through landmark Assembly Bill (AB) 32. A key component to meet these targets is the Long-Term Energy Efficiency Strategic Plan, which set a goal that all new homes in California be Zero Net Energy (ZNE) by 2020. In California, the project team is leveraging this research for a new EPIC funded project to build community scale ZNE. This project will scale the first ZNE neighborhood into the first few communities.
