Petaluma, CA - Green Office Space

Employment

The State of California takes development of energy-efficient green office space very seriously. That's to be expected, given that California is home to six of the top 30 largest green office markets in the U.S., according to the 2017 National Green Building Adoption Index. This report notes that over the past 12 years the overall percentage of EPA Energy Star-rated, and LEED-certified office buildings across these top markets has increased by about 33%. California recently enacted legislation requiring owners of larger commercial buildings to measure the change in energy consumption annually and to make those results available to the public.

A good example of a LEED-certified building in Petaluma is the Wells Fargo bank building at 125 Western Avenue. This property holds high LEED scorecard certifications for energy and atmosphere, indoor environmental quality, and innovative design.
