Event Description


Thursday, January 21, 9-10:30 AM
Microsoft Teams Meeting


As part of its comprehensive effort to reduce greenhouse gas emissions in Washington, the 2019 legislature adopted a new measure, HB 1257, aimed at reducing greenhouse gas emissions from Washington’s commercial building sector. The new legislation, along with three companion bills – the Washington Clean Energy Transformation Act , which requires Washington’s electric utilities to phase out greenhouse-gas emitting generation by 2045, a bill limiting emissions of hydrofluorocarbons (gases used in refrigeration and other industrial processes), and a bill encouraging electrification of Washington’s transportation system – promise to profoundly change Washington’s energy consumption patterns over the next two to three decades.  

This Electric League meeting brings together representatives from the Washington State Department of Commerce, Puget Sound Energy, and Snohomish PUD to provide:

  • An introduction and overview of the Clean Buildings Law
  • An overview of incentive programs
  • An understanding of how consultants and contractors can support building owners as they work toward compliance
  • How local utilities will support their commercial customers with resources, meter data, and programs
