At Livable we offer individualized utility management and cost recovery solutions; we have a skilled legal team who are responsible for providing up-to-date Federal, State, and Local regulations, taking into account any new legislations. 


Back in 2018, the California legislature passed laws that encouraged the sustained use of renewable energy sources. Most relevant to property owners remains Senator Scott Wiener’s SB 700, which extended the state Self-Generation Incentive Program (SGIP) to 2024 and has expanded the desirable rebate program to include up to $800 million for energy storage equipment. According to an article based on the bill’s passage in Energy Storage News  “SGIP supports the deployment of solar, wind turbines, microturbines, fuel cells, energy storage and other distributed energy technologies by utility customers”.


After passing this law Wiener noted that “If we are going to get to 100% clean energy, we need to be using solar power every hour of the day, not just when the sun is shining”—an allusion to the other big renewable energy bill of 2018: SB 100. This bill requires that California get all of its electricity from renewable and zero-emissions resources by 2045, and mandates that the state get 60 percent of its electricity from renewables by 2030.


As years have come and gone since the passing of Wiener’s SB 700 we see many homeowners have been able to make their solar system dreams reality.

Did you know that nearly 22 percent of the average household’s water usage goes to doing laundry? Luckily there are some easy ways to stop water-wasting washers. Start by taking a few minutes to check for leaks at hose connections and remember to replace hoses every three to five years. Make sure to look under the appliances for moisture and check the plumbing lines for leaks as well. A bigger step could be to invest in a newer front-loading washer, which uses a fraction of the water of a top loader.
