Press Release: Mayor Villaraigosa, the Clinton Climate Initiative and C40 Announce First-of-its-Kind Program in the Country to Retrofit Commercial Buildings
Today Mayor Villaraigosa launched the LA Commercial Building Performance Partnership, an innovative, Recovery Act-funded program which will help owners of commercial properties make their buildings more energy and water efficient, while saving tenants money and stimulating the local economy. Through the LA Commercial Building Performance Partnership, building owners can access free energy assessments, as well as financing at competitive rates to cover up to 100 percent of the cost of their energy upgrades. The City of Los Angeles designed the program in collaboration with the Clinton Climate Initiative (CCI) and its partner the C40 Cities Climate Leadership Group (C40). This program is also part of Energy Upgrade California, a state-wide initiative to reduce energy consumption in existing buildings.
