Proposition 39 Energy Management Services
RCEA’s Proposition 39 program currently supports schools with energy management services, project management and assistance with navigating the California Energy Commission’s funding access application and reporting processes. The program leverages the Redwood Coast Energy Watch non-residential program, providing basic benchmarking, walkthrough energy assessments and incentives through Direct Install and Deemed Downstream. RCEA Prop 39 project managers have become trusted energy advisors and continue to assist schools with additional efficiency projects, electrification, EV buses, demand response, on-site generation and storage.
Public Agency Solar Program
RCEA’s Public Agency Solar Program (PASP) provides a “no-cost” service to local public agencies to reduce the institutional barriers that public agencies face to entering the solar marketplace. The PASP has been integrated into RCEA’s 2018-19 Energy Watch services. The integration of local funding (PASP) and efficiency funding (RCEW) allows RCEA staff to offer a comprehensive service to public agencies that adheres to California’s energy loading order—efficiency first! PASP services include, but are not limited to: electric load analysis, benchmarking, energy efficiency upgrade options, project feasibility studies, financing and public works procurement process support that aligns with the agency’s adopted standards.
