The 30:30 Partnership Program – Palm Desert, California

For the City of Palm Desert, and in collaboration with Southern California Edison and Southern California Gas, EcoMotion developed a potent program design for the City’s 30:30 program, a project fostered by the mayor and city manager, and later named “Set to Save.” EcoMotion provided baseline values, analyzed current uptake levels of utility and state programs, and presented specific approaches to achieve the project’s goals. The planning effort involved extensive utility and energy data analysis, as well as a thorough evaluation of the current and planned building stock – including 11 housing types, municipal facilities, 24 major hotels, and 17 resorts. Specific and cross-cutting programs were developed to address each market segment and end-use to achieve the stated goals.
