Howard Choy, General Manager
County Office of Sustainability

 

The County Office of Sustainability (COS) was created within the Internal Services Department by the Board of Supervisors in October 2009.

COS was formed to respond to legislation, regulation and policy related to Climate Change and to serve as a central hub for coordination of Energy Efficiency, Conservation and Sustainability Programs within the County, its facilities and the region.  COS develops and implements programs that impact and benefit the constituents of Los Angeles County, such as:  Energy Upgrade California in Los Angeles County energy efficiency home improvement program, Environmental Service Centers, SolarMap.LACounty.gov and Green.LACounty.gov websites, The Energy Network, and the Southern California Regional Energy Center (SoCalREC). In addition, COS is playing an important role in coordinating and implementing Energy and Environmental policy, County Green Building programs and Climate Action activities for the State, region and all County departments.

There are two divisions within COS; Environmental Initiatives Division (EID) and Energy Management Division (EMD).

EID works internally with County departments and also represents the County in local and statewide organizations to promote energy efficiency, sustainability, climate action planning, legislative review and advisement, and environmental programs and policies.  These efforts are supported through various funding sources, such as grants and utility ratepayer programs.

EMD supports the County and ISD by providing energy management services to County Departments and Superior Courts of California. Services include utility support, energy efficiency projects, monitoring of building management systems, procurement of electricity, natural gas and water, and the operation of power plants. The Division is comprised of four sections, Power Plants, Energy Efficiency Projects, Energy Support Services, and Energy Management Systems (EEMIS).
