The CERI Program will invest in projects across California that:

  • Demonstrate measurable improvements in community energy resilience, promote electricity reliability, and mitigate climate-related risks.
  • Invest in modernized grid infrastructure that can reduce electricity costs and accommodate growing electric loads.
  • Invest in decarbonization solutions that help California achieve its ambitious goal of 100% carbon-free electricity by 2045.
  • Improve energy justice and equity, ensuring that at least 40% of CERI investments are delivered to Disadvantaged & Tribal Communities.
  • Create good-paying jobs with the free and fair choice to join a union.

The Program will prioritize projects in Disadvantaged Communities (DACs), Tribal Communities, and communities with critical energy resilience needs. The CEC is collaborating with relevant stakeholders to develop program objectives, criteria, and metrics to ensure successful outcomes and maximize the impact of CERI Program investments.
