Why do this when there isn’t that much new construction in Santa Barbara?

There are two central reasons why these reach codes can still  have a big local impact, despite not having much new construction. First, buildings are long-term assets which essentially “lock-in” their carbon emissions for long periods of time. Over time the aggregated emissions are significant. Second, it is important to provide a market signal to the industry that they should invest in electric technologies and advance the occupant experience as the State transitions to all-electric buildings.
