The San Jose Environmental Innovation Center (EIC) is a first of its kind “green enterprise” facility that houses services for residents and clean tech entrepreneurs, all working for a healthy environment and economy in our region. With the help of the Federal New Markets Tax Credit, San Jose transformed a marginal property into a showcase of energy and water efficient practices. The Environmental Services Department is the building owner and tenant coordinator.
The EIC and services offered by its tenants contribute to San Jose’s green vision goals. These goals include: diverting waste from landfills, creating clean tech jobs, retrofitting buildings to be green, and replacing streetlights with smart zero emission lights. Other benefits accrue from the services offered by the EIC’s three tenants.
