Mitigation actions

Photovoltaic Permit Fee reduction
On March, 28, 2008, the City Council approved Resolution 2008*30. This changed the permit fee calculation for photovoltaic systems from a percentage of the project cost to a flat fee of $243. This permit fee is applied to all solar building permits, regardless of size or location. It has significant lowered the cost of the building permits and encouraged installation of photovoltaic systems big and small. Start year 2008

Adaptation actions

Green Home Site Visits- Grant Application
In 2012, the City of Antioch was able to partner with Rising Sun Energy Center to bring the California Youth Energy Service to Antioch. This program hires youth ages 15-22 and trains them to conduct green Home Site visits. At these visits, they provide and install energy efficiency materials such as CFLs, clotheslines, showerheads and faucet aerators and pipe installation. We hope to continue this project and include addtional climate impact education in the outreach efforts for the program as well as providing information during the actual home visits. This program will reach over 300 residents in their homes and approximately 3,000 through outreach tabling events. Start year 2013
