The SEES Program is currently not accepting ​grant funding applications for either the SRVEVR or SNPFA programs. The CEC is developing the School Energy Efficiency Database System (SEEDS), which is an online application and reporting system supporting implementation of the SEES Program. Applications ​for both SRVEVR and SNPFA will be accepted through the SEEDS online system following adoption of program guidelines and release of notices of funding availability for each program. Additional information on SEEDS registration and the application process will be provided at that time.

The California Energy Commission was authorized by Assembly Bill (AB) 841 (Chapter 372, Statutes of 2020) to design, administer, and implement the School Energy Efficiency Stimulus (SEES) Program. SEES includes two new grant programs for eligible parties within the service territories of the large electric and natural gas utilities in California.

The School Reopening Ventilation and Energy Efficiency Verification and Repair Program (SRVEVR) will provide funding to local educational agencies for the reasonable costs of HVAC assessment, general maintenance and adjustment, filter replacement, and carbon dioxide monitor installation as well as certain repairs, replacements and other improvements to HVAC systems. SVREVR will prioritize investments in facilities in underserved communities and those near freeways or industrial facilities.

The School Noncompliant Plumbing Fixture and Appliance Program (SNPFA) will provide grants to local educational agencies and state agencies to replace noncompliant plumbing fixtures and appliances that fail to meet water efficiency standards again prioritizing funding for underserved communities.
