"We Are Still In" - 1 Year Later

Today marks one year since President Trump announced his intent to withdraw the United States from the Paris Agreement.  Within 72 hours of that announcement, a new wave of American climate leadership was galvanized by mayors, governors, and CEOs, Brisbane included (see post from last June). The "We Are Still In" coalition has now grown to over 2,700 cities, states, businesses, universities, and other entities, of which the City of Brisbane is a signatory.

The rapid growth of renewable energy generation at competitive costs worldwide shows that the transition to a low carbon economy is irreversible.  And while there are many positive trends in climate action, it is also clear that more needs to be done to reach the goals established in the Paris Agreement.  That is why Brisbane is still making advancements to curb global warming and adhere to the measures in its adopted Climate Action Plan.

Case in point: the City recently partnered with Home Energy Analytics to offer Brisbane residential customers a free new program to help them save energy and money.  That program is called HomeIntel, which is offered on behalf of PG&E and consists of Smart Audit, HEA's online energy analysis and management software tool.  HomeIntel provides at no charge a whole-home analysis of your energy use based on your household's smart meter data.  Whether you own or rent your house or apartment, you can get a set of customized recommendations that usually includes many simple, low- or no-cost fixes.  To learn more and to start saving, go to www.brisbane.hea.com or click on the image below.  For any questions, please contact HomeIntel representative, James Tuleya at jamest@hea.com .

On May 21st, SamTrans staff met with concerned Brisbane parents to discuss High School bus transportation starting in August 2018.  Both the parents that attended and SamTrans reported having a very productive meeting; Brisbane parents were very happy that their concerns were being taken seriously.  There are still a number of decisions to be made, work to be done, and alternatives to be explored. At this time, SamTrans is planning on improving the transfer between the 121 and the 110 routes so that students from Southern Hills won't miss the transfer.  They are also looking at extending the 49 to Brisbane so that students from Brisbane will have a "one-seat" ride to Terra Nova.  Additional tweaks will be made over the next few weeks, after which SamTrans will present final routes for the upcoming 2018-19 school year.  We will keep the Brisbane Community posted on this issue here on our website and in our weekly e-newsletters.
