California's New-home Energy Goal 2020

California's new-home energy goal by 2020 is within reach. As green building practices expand, new homes are becoming more energy-efficient and healthier for their occupants. In fact, California lawmakers have set a goal that all new construction will be zero net energy (ZNE) by 2020.

That means that three years from now, all new homes coming on line should produce as much energy as they consume. That ambitious goal will help control climate change, because energy used in buildings is considered the second-largest contributor to greenhouse gas emissions in California. Energy-efficient design and use significantly reduces the costs and environmental impacts associated with buildings.

Harnessing the sun’s power and using energy-efficient lighting and appliances as well as creating a well-insulated building envelope are key to this goal.

Although the number of ZNE homes is still quite small, the goal is achievable, especially in our mild coastal climate.
