Low-GWP Incentives in California: What’s Next?


The California Cooling Act (SB 1013) was signed into law on September 13th, 2018. The bill directs the California Air Resources Board (CARB) to establish a statewide incentive program for the installation of technologies using low-GWP refrigerants. 
There is one more critical step in this process. Funds for the incentive program must still be allocated by the legislature. Without support from our industry, the funding for incentives is at risk and may not be included in the State’s budget. 
Take action today to ensure funding for the low-GWP incentive program by:

  1. Submitting a letter of support to fund the incentive program. Contact NASRC staff for template language. 

  2. Attending CARB’s upcoming workshop on October 24th, 2018 to express comments of support.

  3. Signing up for the NASRC Incentives Task Force to stay informed on incentive activities and opportunities.

The case for utility investment in natural refrigeration technologies

Utilities are fundamentally driven to co-invest in energy efficiency with their customers. Many utilities have become quite sophisticated in their understanding of conventional refrigeration technology and how to make it more energy efficient. But very few of them understand natural refrigeration systems in the same way.

Join Us in Supporting California’s Refrigerant Incentive Program

NASRC directors have been working with the government of California to create an incentive program that would prevent harmful refrigerant emissions. If approved, the Refrigerant Incentive Program will be the beginning of the end of supermarkets’ struggles with endless refrigerant phaseouts, regulations, and government refrigerant dictates
