SCP opened the doors to its Advanced Energy Center in downtown Santa Rosa in June 2021. With the help of a $9.8M EPIC grant from the California Energy Commission, SCP created the Advanced Energy Center to empower customers to adopt feasible and practical ways to power more of their daily lives with renewable energy. It is a first-of-its-kind facility where the public can learn about energy-efficient home appliances, available rebates and ways to save energy and lower their electricity bills.
With electrification becoming the single most impactful way to reduce greenhouse gas emissions and mitigate the climate crisis, the Advanced Energy Center makes it easy to discover how to electrify your home, business and vehicle. The technologies featured there include heating and air conditioning systems, induction stovetops, heat pump water heaters, electric vehicle chargers, battery storage and more. SCP also offers a variety of virtual, in-person and hybrid classes for the public on the technologies featured in the Advanced Energy Center.
Since its opening, over 7,500 people have visited the Advanced Energy Center, and more than $1,550,000 in rebates have been paid out on 691 residential projects.
