The Sonoma County Energy Independence Program (SCEIP) is now financing wildfire safety and seismic strengthening for both residential and commercial buildings. Over the last ten years, the program has funded thousands of projects resulting in greenhouse gas emission reductions and job creation countywide. This expansion adds a resiliency component for property owners to fortify their buildings against disasters, ultimately saving more emissions and further working towards climate saving efforts. "The evolution of the Program originally implemented to meet climate change goals just made sense," said Board of Supervisors Chair Susan Gorin. "As climate-related disasters come more frequently along with increased planned power shutoff occurrences, the ability to easily access funding is critical in our resilience as a County. Making our buildings safe and resilient can help protect lives and build sustainable communities to withstand disasters."
