ECCAP Meeting #7 - Shared screen with speaker view
Who can see your viewing activity?
We've opened the chat for all participants this evening. We will include this chat with the Meeting Summary. Thank you for joining.
I suggest that everyone who is interested in how to save money with the Inflation Reduction Act, they go to Rewiring America and their IRA calculator that shows the amount of money you can save today, and next year - and the amounts saved via tax credits from the federal government and the potential for incentives from the state energy office. Here's the link:https://www.rewiringamerica.org/app/ira-calculator
How long will the public have to comment on the Draft plan?
Arthur "Sash" Impastato
The draft ECCAP is 169 pages and was only released 10/20 with the staff pushing for City Council approval this Fall. What are the plans to ensure there will be adequate time for the public and Task Force to provide meaningful feedback on this very long and complex draft Action Plan?
How do you plan on approaching Scope 3 emissions? Thank you!
The public may currently provide feedback on this current draft through next week; we have a form online (I will share a link) or you may email staff directly. A more 'final' version will be available for official public comment in November after it has gone through this process and also been presented and discussed among a few City Commissions, etc.. We will go over the timeline/schedule and next steps.
The executive summary must highlight those actions that will "move the needle" as the Mayor suggested.
Who is the audience of this report?
very hard to hear from folks not sitting at the table and closer to the owl
Huge challenge: How do we change the mindset of the community toward the carbon? It is simply not on the radar screen when most people make decisions on their homes, cars, travel, etc. This should be a litmus test question for the new PAES candidates.
Please explain acronyms. Is ICF the consulting firm that was helping with the planning?
Yes, ICF helped us with the models for the City and drafting the report
