CA approves $3.1B to cut state energy use

Among other things, the sweeping effort will retrofit up to 130,000 homes to slash their energy use by 20 percent. It will spend $260 million to retrofit government facilities throughout the state and devote $175 million to developing “zero net energy” buildings that don’t need power from the state’s electrical grid.
