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

The last day for local educational agencies (LEAs) with approved energy expenditure plans (EEPs) to submit their Annual Progress Reports is September 30, 2017. These legally mandated reports are very important and provide information required in the Energy Commission’s report to the Citizens Oversight Board.

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

All Annual Progress Reports are due to the Energy Commission by September 30, 2017.

Reporting instructions, training videos, and PowerPoint presentations are available on the Proposition 39 (K-12) program webpage at:

ATTENTION: Energy Expenditure Plan Due Date Extended to February 26, 2018

Final Deadline Extension! The final energy expenditure plan (EEP) application due date has been extended to February 26, 2018! Local educational agencies now have an additional one and a half months to participate in the Proposition 39 K-12 program. After February 26, 2018, the Energy Expenditure Plan Online System will not accept new EEPs or EEP amendments requesting additional Proposition 39 funding. February 26, 2018, is the final opportunity to request Proposition 39 funding.

Amendments will be accepted after February 26, 2018, only for adjustments to approved EEPs that do not request additional funding. For example, removing an approved energy efficiency measure from an approved EEP. Additional information on amendments to approved EEPs is included in the Energy Expenditure Plan Handbook at:

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.
