As the second in our series of roundtables to promote the adoption of the 2022 Zero Code For California, this roundtable discussion will serve as a forum to share best-practices and implementation strategies to design, build, and operate all-electric affordable housing. As we build momentum to decarbonize our built environment, we recognize an opportunity to lower the cost of housing, improve indoor air-quality, and facilitate greater social and environmental equity with measures to improve energy performance, electrify new construction with on-site renewables, and procure 100% renewable energy for whatever the project can not produce on-site.
