Before investing in that solar panel or hot new electric vehicle, one of the most immediate ways we can be more energy efficient is to look within our homes to find ways to consume smarter. Easier said than done, though, as the prospect of making upgrades is expensive and navigating through the myriad of incentive programs is often daunting and downright confusing. To help demistify one such program, Southern California Edison's Energy Upgrade California, Dwell on Design invited Richard Genece, Residential Portfolio Manager of Energy Efficiency Programs of SoCal Ed., onto the Sustainability Stage. We chatted with Richard to get to the heart of the program and find out how Californians can save some cold, hard cash by cutting back on energy consumption.
