Prepare Your Prop. 39 Clean Energy Jobs Act Application for Funding with FREE Assistance from the California Conservation Corp
December 6, 2013 The Clean Energy Jobs Act (Prop 39) provides $550 million annually to fund energy efficiency projects. Charter schools are eligible to receive funding under this program, but must first prepare an energy opportunity survey to submit as part of the funding application.
The California Conservation Corps (CCC) was allocated funding from the Clean Energy Jobs Act to enroll and train young adults and military veterans as part of its Energy Corps program for Local Education Agencies (LEAs) including charter schools.
Trained corps members will visit schools throughout the state to conduct "whole building" energy opportunity surveys (EO Surveys) at no cost to schools. The data from the EO Surveys will be analyzed by the UC Davis Energy Efficiency Center or other Energy Corps partners to enable, inform, and recommend plans for energy-efficiency projects for each charter school building surveyed.
