Green Building Guidebook


In 2014, the SGVCOG was awarded funding by the California Public Utilities Commission (CPUC) to complete a green building guidebook. The guidebook educates property owners on the existing requirements of the California Energy Code, promotes energy efficient design specific to the San Gabriel Valley, explains the principles that underlie energy efficient design, and promotes practical and low-cost energy saving measures and design.
