ENGIE's 5 key priorities are:

  1. Renewables

Plumas County is currently exploring:

  • Adding solar power to the Health & Human Services Building (Annex)
  • Adding a large solar grid (site to be determined), which will allow Plumas County to "attach" their PG&E accounts to
  • Upgrading interior and exterior lighting to LED bulbs
  • Installing generators at essential buildings that currently do not have backup generator power
  • Installing new, energy-efficient HVAC units  

While the County is only in the beginning phases of this assessment, we are optimistic that County buildings can become more energy efficient, costs can be reduced, and essential buildings can remain open during power outages.
