REMINDER: Annual Progress Reports are due September 30, 2017!

September 30, 2017, is the last day for local educational agencies (LEAs) with approved energy expenditure plans to submit their Annual Progress Reports to the Energy Commission.

2016 Annual Progress Reports were made available on July 3, 2017, through the Energy Expenditure Plan Online Reporting System. Each year LEAs are required to submit an Annual Progress Report for each approved energy expenditure plan until all eligible energy measures within an approved plan are completed. The annual progress reports or templates are made available for LEAs to report activities that occurred in the previous fiscal year.

Reporting instructions, training videos, and PowerPoint presentations are available on the Proposition 39 (K-12) program webpage at: http://www.energy.ca.gov/efficiency/proposition39/index.html. (If the link above does not work, please copy entire link into your web browser’s URL.)

Questions may be directed to Prop39@energy.ca.gov or the Proposition 39 Hotline, toll-free at 855-380-8722, or for those out-of-state at (916) 653-0392.


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.
