Arcata Ratchets Up Energy Efficiency Requirements
California state government has gone big into energy-efficiency programs and is resolved to sharply reduce greenhouse gas emissions.
The City of Arcata is going a step or two further. Arcata recently enacted new energy standards for buildings that are more stringent than the state requirements, at least for now. Guests from the city and members of the energy efficiency committee visit with details of this and other green efforts in Arcata.
