Mariposa County is a proponent of energy efficient programs and projects throughout the community. The County continues to search for ways to improve the environment and educate the community members on how to achieve energy efficiency goals. With the support of Townsend Public Affairs, Mariposa County secured $25,000 in funding from the Sierra Nevada Partnership Grant Program to conduct a Greenhouse Gas (GHG) Emissions Inventory.
This program will help Mariposa County achieve its goals of a county wide GHG inventory by beginning the necessary steps and initiating an energy efficiency planning process. The inventory allows the County to obtain objective information that will provide the public and elected officials with necessary information to promote energy efficient programs in the future, as well as generate substantial cost savings for residents, businesses, and visitors.
