FIRST REMINDER: Annual Prop 39 Progress Reports are due September 30, 2018

September 30, 2018, is the last day for local educational agencies (LEA) with approved energy expenditure plans (EEP) to submit annual progress reports to the Energy Commission.

Annual progress report templates will be made available on July 1, 2018, through the Energy Expenditure Plan Online Reporting System. LEAs are legally mandated to report to the Energy Commission. Annual progress reports must be submitted for each approved energy expenditure plan (EEP) until all eligible energy measures are completed. The annual progress report covers activities that occurred in the previous fiscal year.

Deadline Approaching for Final Proposition 39 Funding Approval

The last date to submit an Energy Expenditure Plan (EEP) was February 26, 2018. The final date to secure Proposition 39 funding through an EEP is June 30, 2018. EEP applications, which are reviewed on a first-come, first-served basis, must be reviewed and approved by a California Energy Commission project manager by the deadline.

To ensure enough time for a complete review, including the possibility of having to submit additional information, local education agencies are advised to work closely with an Energy Commission project manager. Additional requested information should be submitted as soon as possible after the request is made, but no later than June 15, 2018. Failure to provide complete information may result in an EEP not being approved.

For more information call the Proposition 39 K-12 Hotline @ (916) 653-0392.

Proposition 39 K-12 Program - March 1, 2018, Remaining Balance Estimate

The Proposition 39 K-12 Program received $1.748 billion over five fiscal years, beginning with fiscal year 2013-2014 and ending this fiscal year 2017-2018.

As of March 1, 2018, it is estimated that $114.5 million remains unrequested from the Proposition 39 K-12 Program. This estimate includes both the remaining funds allocated to local educational agencies (LEA) that have not submitted an energy expenditure plan, and the remaining balances of the participating LEAs that submitted an energy expenditure plan but did not request the entire five-year allocation.

The California Energy Commission is reviewing all submitted energy expenditure plans, with June 30, 2018, as the final date to approve all requests for funding. On July 1, 2018, the Energy Commission will provide the California Department of Education (DOE) the final energy expenditure plan approval list. In July, DOE will determine the final remaining balance for the Proposition 39: Clean Energy Job Creation Fund’s K-12 Program. 

Questions may be directed to or the Proposition 39 (K-12) Hotline, toll-free at 855-380-8722, or for those out-of-state at (916) 653-0392.


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.
