Now that the state has implemented a cap-and-trade program one of the most common questions we get is “how will this impact commercial real estate?”  The program is a critical piece of the state law curbing climate-changing greenhouse gases (AB 32) and impacts are predicted to be somewhere between reducing GHG’s and attracting more businesses to our clean and green state; to a mass-exodus by people that can’t afford the higher energy rates.  But in general, nobody really knows how the real estate market and businesses will react.

However, on Feb. 28, those that want to be ahead of the planning for Cap-and-Trade impacts and understand the complicated moving parts can join Capitol Weekly and the University of California, at the UC Sacramento Center for a detailed discussion.

This meeting marks the seventh conference on major policy and political issues sponsored jointly by Capitol Weekly and the UC Center. The California Channel plans to record the event for later broadcast.

There will be four panel discussions – two in the morning, two in the afternoon – and a keynote luncheon address by Sen. Fran Pavley, the original author of AB 32.  If you are interested in participating in this discussion, click here.  Space is limited.
