Take the Energy Action Plan Survey

Take the Energy Action Plan Survey

On February 12, 2019, the Nevada County Board of Supervisors approved the Energy Action Plan (EAP) as the County’s unincorporated area’s roadmap for expanding energy-efficiency, water-efficiency, and renewable-energy, and the cost-savings that accompany these efforts. The EAP was prepared by Sierra Business Council and contains a three-year implementation action plan. Beginning in 2019, the Nevada County Energy Action Plan (EAP) Community Workgroup was established to begin implementing community outreach and education to promote the EAP’s Goals and Strategies, as outlined on the County’s Energy Efficiency webpage at https://www.mynevadacounty.com/3055/Energy-Efficiency.  Specifically, the County’s goal is a 51% reduction electricity and 30% reduction in natural gas use by 2035.

Like many of us, the Community Group began to pivot its work around the impacts of the coronavirus pandemic and in late summe4r began to work in developing a Nevada County Energy Action Toolkit that would provide both orientation on energy efficiencies, as well as local resources for homeowners, business owners and residents alike. It is important to note that Nevada County’s EAP focuses on the unincorporated areas of the County. Nevada City and Grass Valley have adopted similar Plans in 2015 and 2018 respectively. The Town of Truckee is in the process of developing its own Climate Action Plan. Each jurisdiction’s plans have its own set of goals and actions to reduce emissions.

Therefore, in partnership with the Sierra Resource Council (SBC) and County Staff, the Nevada County EAP Community Group is launching a survey to gain the general public’s input on what type of resources would be most effective.

Please go to www.mynevadacounty.com/EAPSurvey to provide your input today. It only takes about 5 minutes and will really help ensure that the Nevada County EAP Toolkit has the right tools in its toolbelt.
