Sacramento, Yolo Counties Join State Retrofit Program

Supervisors in both counties voted Tuesday to take part in a voluntary clean energy finance program called: California-FIRST. 

Sacramento County Supervisor Roger Dickinson says it’s a win-win plan.

“It’s good for homeowners; reduces energy consumption; it creates jobs. This is a real manifestation of the development of green jobs. And it’s good for buyers when properties are sold. So I can’t imagine a better New Year’s present than going down this path.”

Under the program, property owners can spread the cost of energy-efficient retrofits out and tack it onto their annual property tax bill. Improvements include putting in new windows, solar panels and low-flow toilets. The program is expected to start in June.

Placer County is moving forward on a similar program.
