The new Energy Expenditure Plan Online system is now available!

Local Educational Agencies (LEAs) may submit Energy Expenditure Plan (EEP) applications under the 2015 Guideline rules using the new streamlined, online application process. Each LEA received a “Welcome to Energy Expenditure Plan Online” e-mail that includes the web address link to the Energy Expenditure Plan Online system. The Energy Expenditure Plan Online system web address link is not found on this website.

Please Note: LEAs are no longer allowed to submit EEP applications using the old Expenditure Plan General Form (Form A) and Expenditure Plan Project Summary Form (Form B) Excel spreadsheets.


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.
