LA Regional Retrofit System
Los Angeles County is working to design and implement a regional energy services infrastructure. The Southern California Regional Energy Services Center will provide one-stop services for financing, contracting and procurement, and data collection and management for 55 cities in a five-county area. The initial focus is on retrofitting municipal and multi-family residential buildings with the potential for a more predicable system for retrofitting commercial and other institutional buildings. EC Los Angeles has taken a lead role in helping to build in "high road" elements, bringing a focus on workforce and economic development strategies that lead to high wage careers and stronger local regional economies.
