Energy and Climate Action Plan

NOP - Notice of Preparation of a Draft EIR
Document Description
The proposed ECAP includes a 2007 baseline inventory of community-wide GHG emissions, a forecast of emissions, a forecast of emissions to the years 2020 and 2035, a GHG reduction target of 15% below baseline emissions by 2020, a set of emission reduction measures to meet the target, and a methodology for tracking and reporting emissions in the future. The ECAP would implement a suite of emissions reduction measures across many sectors to achieve community-wide GHG emission reductions and energy-saving measures in support of a thriving, well-balanced, and sustainable community. The emission reduction measures proposed in the ECAP are made of a combination of voluntary, phased, and mandatory measures. Phased measures are those which would initially be implemented on a voluntary basis until a designated check-in year. At this time, if the participation rate of the measure is below a designated threshold, the measure would be phased into containing mandatory requirements. These emission reduction measures, combined with the measures identified in the County's Energy Action Plan for municipal facilities, would collectively provide a decrease in both GHG emissions and energy use in the County. The actions will assist the State in meeting its GHG reduction goals consistent with AB 32 and energy reduction goals consistent with California's Energy Efficiency Strategic Plan.
