Passed by voters in November 2012, Proposition 39 makes changes to corporate income taxes and provides up to $550 million to improve the energy efficiency of California’s aging schools and grow the state’s significant clean energy economy. California public schools (K-12), county offices of education, community college districts, charter schools, and state special schools may receive funding for five fiscal years starting with the 2013-14 fiscal year.
As schools and community colleges begin the process of identifying energy needs, Energy Commission staff will explain the preliminary guidelines and funding allocations for eligible educational organizations. Five public meetings and three webinars will be held across the state. The public is invited to participate and provide input. The final Proposition 39 guidelines will be approved at an Energy Commission business meeting in December 2013.
Public comments submitted via email should include docket number 13-CCEJA-1 and indicate “Comments on Proposition 39” in the subject line. Comments may be sent to firstname.lastname@example.org by October 25, 2013.
