Understanding homeowner perspectives

We're interested in better understanding the energy efficiency actions of homeowners who install rooftop solar electric systems and their perspectives on performing home energy upgrades. Insights into the connection between solar adoption and energy upgrades could help policymakers and regulators in designing future residential energy programs.

Len Hering
In recent years, we’ve broadened our scope

Recently, we dropped the “California” from our name to become the Center for Sustainable Energy (CSE). It’s not because we are doing anything less in California, but instead it reflects the fact that we are doing work in other states – and plan on being even more engaged in clean energy not only statewide, but throughout the nation.

Join us to learn about a wide range of subjects related to energy efficiency, renewable energy and clean transportation. For a complete list, visit our Events page.
