RESNET® Board of Directors member Jacob Atalla, KB Home Vice President of Sustainability and Innovation, received a full-page coverage in the Los Angeles Times this morning for receiving the prestigious Schneider Electric Sustainability Impact Award.

The newspaper feature states:

“Thanks to his efforts, the company has been advancing the vision of an energy-efficient, decarbonized home. Now, it’s built a first-of-its-kind sustainable neighborhood in partnership with Schneider Electric, the U.S. Department of Energy, and other partners.”

“Impact Makers, like Atalla, are leaders who turn sustainability ambitions into action at the intersection of technology and decarbonization. These actions impact our daily lives and shape our energy future — secure, efficient, and reliable — for generations to come.”

The feature focuses on KB Home’s California neighborhood microgrid development. RESNET® is working with Jacob to feature a microgrid neighborhood tour as part of the 2023 RESNET Conference, taking place in San Diego, November 15-17.
