A big part of the platform San Diego Mayor Jerry Sanders rolled out in January’s State of the City address was to make San Diego a hub for environmentally friendly technology.
The city aims to provide financial incentives for low interest loans that could double the size of the city’s solar sector and allow homeowners to save energy by retrofitting their property.
This particular agenda item, an amendment to city code, would help create a special financing district that would allow people to complete environmental improvements to their homes through loans tied to their properties.
The Mayor’s Office hopes to have the entire process complete with the loans ready to go by June.
