What are certified natural gas and carbon offsets? What rebates are available if I want to replace my heater with a heat pump? Decarbonization is a complex topic, but in this blog, we answer not only many of the questions asked during our August webinar, A Path to Pollution-Free Buildings, but other questions our experts are asked in their daily work in the field.
At WRA, our sponsors play a critical role in supporting the important work we need to do to solve the climate crisis. By working together to take bold action, we can protect land and improve access to it, ensure that communities in the West transition to clean energy and reduce carbon emissions, and help states use less water and safeguard our Western rivers. Our sponsor Southwest Energy Efficiency Project (SWEEP) is also achieving the ambitious goals needed to fight climate change, and we are grateful to work together.
Wildlife and wild places are part of our lives in the West, deeply important to the cultural and economic livelihood of our communities, but the challenges ahead — maintaining healthy lands, conserving abundant wildlife species, and minimizing extinction — are enormous. Yet we’ve seen a ray of hope: investment in habitat works.
Personal electric vehicles have entered the mainstream — the ads are seemingly everywhere, and you are probably seeing more and more of them on the streets or maybe you already own one yourself. But what about large commercial vehicles like delivery vans, dump trucks, or transit buses?
Over the last thirty years, WRA’s advocates and supporters have shaped the Interior West. And, now, you’re shaping the future too.
