California Energy Commission Receives Leadership Award for New Solar Homes Partnership

The California Energy Commission was recently honored as a recipient of a 2016 State Leadership in Clean Energy Award for its New Solar Homes Partnership (NSHP), which provides financial incentives and other support to builders, developers, and homeowners to encourage the construction of new, energy-efficient solar homes.

This was one of six programs nationwide to win an award for its outstanding accomplishments.
