Advocacy

CFPA has continued to dialog with City staff, City Council, the Utility Advisory Commission and members of the community.  We’ve presented numerous policy proposals designed to put Palo Alto on track for meeting their ambitious goal of an 80% reduction of GHG levels by 2030 (80/30).

BE Smart

CFPA proposes BE Smart to electric utilities and CCE’s as a means to achieve the mass electrification of existing residential buildings over the next 10 to 20 years. Installing electric devices instead of their natural gas equivalents must be made the easy, affordable and default choice for building owners and renters if we are to meet our GHG reduction goals and stop further investment in soon to be stranded natural gas fueled assets.
