About the Silicon Valley Energy Map
Welcome to the Silicon Valley Energy Map – your resource for information about energy use, solar and renewable energy, and green buildings in Santa Clara County. We hope you enjoy exploring your area to learn about and become inspired by the efforts people are making in Silicon Valley to implement clean energy. Take advantage of the many resources the map offers to decide what energy efficient or renewable option makes sense for you.
The Silicon Valley Energy Map is a publicly available online tool produced by the Silicon Valley Energy Watch, a partnership between the City of San José and Pacific Gas and Electric Company (PG&E) serving all of Santa Clara County with energy efficiency outreach. Clean energy is a community effort; the Map is your resource to make it happen!
We want to hear from you! We welcome your feedback and questions at firstname.lastname@example.org. If you don’t see your solar installation or certified green building on the map, send an e-mail to the above e-mail address and tell us about it!
Why was the map created?
The Silicon Valley Energy Map is the first time that an online site is bringing together, in a single, easy-to-use format, comprehensive information on building energy plus detailed information and resources for next steps to implement clean energy. Silicon Valley is implementing ambitious energy goals, and the Map will help us track our progress, target our efforts, and focus on our next steps. It is a tool for residents, businesses, governments, and community leaders alike.
