Jim has emphasized the importance of moving away from our dependence on foreign oil, and moving towards alternative and clean technologies.
Under Jim's leadership, the County of Santa Clara initiated an energy master plan and reduced its consumption and energy costs by 20% in a single year. This significant benchmark laid the groundwork for the county's green building policy, which requires that county departments utilize green building concepts and the LEED program for the construction, maintenance, and demolition of county buildings. While in the Assembly, he coauthored a solar panel bill to help making energy efficient solar panels within financial reach of all homeowners.
