HVAC Action Plan
Recognizes WHPA Leadership
The HVAC Action Plan is designed to help California's HVAC sector achieve the goals described in the California Energy Efficiency Strategic Plan.
The WHPA was recognized as a significant contributor to the development of the HVAC Action Plan. Of the 34 “champions” identified to help transform California’s use of energy in the HVAC sector, 30 are affiliated with organizations that are members of the WHPA.
Mark Cherniack, who is staff to the WHPA and who helped draft the Action Plan, said "The HVAC sector is leading the other industries, including lighting, in meeting the milestones outlined in the Action Plan. The fact that the industry formed the WHPA in 2009 provided an experienced, cohesive base to support the development of the HVAC Action Plan.”
The Western HVAC Performance Alliance was prominently mentioned in two June articles of leading industry publications.
The cover story of the June issue of Indoor Comfort News was titled “Contractors Say ‘Yes’ to Calif. Utilities HVAC QM Programs. The article stated “WHPA has held numerous committee meetings and worked with the IOUs and the CPUC to formulate and execute the California HVAC Action Plan.“
Contracting Business ran a column, “California Is Getting It Right!” by Dominic Guarino, Chairman and CEO of National Comfort Institute in the June issue. The thought-provoking article included his acknowledgement of “a group of hard working individuals in California (who) formed the Western HVAC Performance Alliance… the group has a good representation by a cross-section of our industry.”
It went on to state “The WHPA helped develop the (California utility) programs with involvement from HVAC technicians and contractors, and property managers with the goal of providing value to customers and to contractors.” CLICK HERE for article.
