Building Electrification Technical Assistance

Free technical assistance for design of new buildings and upgrades.

All-electric building design and electric vehicle readiness provide for healthier and safer homes and workplaces. Using electric appliances and vehicles instead of fossil fuels reduces carbon pollution which causes climate change. These buildings can also reduce builder and resident costs. Numerous cities have adopted requirements to implement these advanced techniques.

To support the development of all-electric buildings and electric vehicle readiness, Silicon Valley Clean Energy is working with TRC to provide extensive, free, technical assistance to architects, builders, developers, design engineers, contractors, and energy consultants on all-electric building technologies and electric vehicle infrastructure.

Basic or in-depth project assistance: Queries can be submitted via email or a phone call. For complex challenges, your request will be assigned to a team of subject matter experts for extended support.

• Technical training for contractors: In-person, hands-on training, webinars, online videos and presentations covering technology installation, maintenance, and sales. Opportunities to connect with equipment suppliers, professional organizations, and trade allies.
