The California Energy Commission prepared this report to the Citizens Oversight Board in accordance with Senate Bill 73 (Committee on Budget and Fiscal Review, Chapter 29, Statutes of 2013), adopted by the Legislature and signed into law by former Governor Edmund G. Brown Jr. on June 27, 2013. To alleviate the burden to local educational agencies, information required to be reported to the Citizens Oversight Board by local educational agencies is contained within this report.
This report summarizes results from the start of the Proposition 39 K-12 Program (December 19, 2013) through the end of the 2018-2019 fiscal year. During this period, the Energy Commission approved 2,121 energy expenditure plans submitted by 1,750 local educational agencies, representing $1.54 billion in approved project funding and $154.6 million in planning funding, benefiting 7,189 project sites. Much of the information in this report, such as energy savings, is self-reported from the participating local educational agencies. Five hundred and twenty-two energy expenditure plans have been submitted that include postinstallation energy consumption and savings data. Another 599 energy expenditure plans are also complete but lack the required 12 months of postinstallation energy consumption data required for final project completion reports. An additional 793 energy expenditure plans include projects that are still under construction.
In addition, this progress report summarizes results of the Energy Conservation Assistance Act-Education Subaccount Financing Program, the Bright Schools Program, and the School Bus Replacement Program. For Fiscal Years 2013-14 through 2018-19, the Energy Commission approved 35 Energy Conservation Assistance Act-Education Subaccount loans totaling $57.8 million. During the same period, the Bright Schools Program provided technical assistance to 173 local educational agencies and community colleges. The School Bus Replacement Program has awarded $74.9 million for replacement electric buses and $14 million for electric bus charging infrastructure.
