The California Clean Energy Jobs Act
(Proposition 39 (K-12) Program)

Important Message

FINAL EMAIL REMINDER: Annual Progress Reports and Final Project Completion Reports are due December 31, 2015!

The last day for Local Educational Agencies (LEAs) with approved Energy Expenditure Plans (EEPs) to submit their Annual Progress Reports or Final Project Completion Reports is Thursday, December 31, 2015.

These legally mandated reports are very important and provide information required in the Energy Commission’s report to the Citizens Oversight Board. LEA authorized representatives and project managers identified in the approved EEPs were sent separate email reminders. LEAs must use the Energy Expenditure Plan Online reporting module to complete and submit their report. The online module provides two possible report templates:

  1. Annual Progress Report: Each year LEAs must submit an Annual Progress Report for each approved EEP.

  2. Final Project Completion Report: LEAs must submit a Final Project Completion Report 12-15 months after all eligible energy measures within an approved EEP have been completed. A final project completion report must be completed for each approved EEP.

For this initial reporting cycle, all reports (Annual Progress Report or, if applicable, a Final Project Completion Report) for approved EEPs are due to the Energy Commission by Thursday, December 31, 2015.

Reporting instructions, training videos, and PowerPoint presentations are available below.


Overview

The California Clean Energy Jobs Act (Prop. 39) changed the corporate income tax code and allocates projected revenue to California's General Fund and the Clean Energy Job Creation Fund for five fiscal years, beginning with fiscal year 2013-14. Under the initiative, roughly up to $550 million annually is available for appropriation by the Legislature for eligible projects to improve energy efficiency and expand clean energy generation in schools.

Eligible local educational agencies (LEAs) — including county offices of education, school districts, charter schools and state special schools—can request funding by submitting an energy expenditure plan application to the California Energy Commission. For the first year, there is an option to receive part or all of a school's allocation for energy savings planning purposes. The Energy Commission approves plans and works with the California Department of Education, which subsequently distributes funds after plans have been approved.

The Energy Commission is committed to helping applicants through the process. Tools and resources on this page are designed to help expedite filing an application for approval. New materials and updates will be posted as they are available.
