As part of the May 19, 2004 Business Meeting, the Energy Commission will consider adopting substantive changes to the Guidebook for the Consumer Education Program. This guidebook describes the eligibility requirements, selection and award process and administrative requirements for receiving funding from the Energy Commission's Consumer Education Program. This guidebook was adopted in February 2003 and is being revised to clarify projects and activities that are eligible for funding.

On September 12, 2002, Senate Bill 1038 (SB 1038, Chapter 515, Statutes of 2002, Sher), was enacted into law authorizing the Energy Commission to administer the Renewable Energy Program beginning in 2003 through 2006. The Consumer Education Program is one of several program elements within the Energy Commission's Renewable Energy Program. The Consumer Education Program provides information, promotes renewable energy and helps build a consumer market for renewable energy and emerging renewable technologies. The proposed changes to the guidebook are available on the Energy Commission's website at:

www.energy.ca.gov/renewables/02-REN-1038/documents/index.html

Hard copies of the final draft guidebooks may be obtained by calling Janet Preis at (916) 654-4524.
