San Bernardino's Board of Supervisors launched Green County San Bernardino in August 2007. The program includes a number of incentives to encourage residents, builders, and businesses to adopt more sustainable practices.
Builders who participate in San Bernardino County’s Green Building program will receive accelerated plan review, priority inspections, design assistance, and recognition for all qualified projects. Builders can earn their green building designation by following any one of these County-approved green rating systems: California Green Builder, Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED), or the County’s Green Building Basics Checklist.
Residents in the County’s unincorporated areas can also receive incentives for reducing their home’s energy usage. Up to $5,000 in permit fees are waived for the installation of solar energy systems, wind-generated electrical systems, tankless water heaters, and highly efficient heating, ventilation and air conditioning systems.
