JUST UPDATED: Energy Expenditure Plan Online - Energy Efficiency Measures Drop Down Menu Options

Revised Energy Efficiency Measure options available in the Energy Expenditure Plan Online System drop down menu.

To provide better understanding, items included in the drop down menu for Energy Efficiency Measures have been revised for clarification purposes. The following Energy Efficiency Measures have been revised or listed as an independent measure:

  • Lighting- Retrofit Interior Lamps to LED
  • HVAC- Packaged/Split System AC/Heat Pump/VRF
  • HVAC- Demand Controlled Ventilation
  • HVAC Controls- Door Switch/Occ. Sensors
  • Energy Storage- On Site Energy Storage

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

Now Available! The new Power Purchase Agreement (PPA) Calculator, enhanced Facility and Service Account Information Form (CEC-24) and revised Energy Expenditure Plan Handbook are now available!

The new PPA calculator uses standardized assumptions and user defined photovoltaic (PV) project information to provide calculations. It will provide a consistent basis for the evaluation of the savings and cost effectiveness associated with PPA-funded solar PV or clean energy generation projects proposed to be developed at LEA sites.

The CEC-24 has been revised to include an enhanced feature that copies all the information (except utility account numbers) from the previous line. This is beneficial for LEAs with multiple meter accounts from a single utility.

The Energy Expenditure Plan Handbook has been updated to include instructions on the enhanced CEC-24 form and the new PPA calculator.

These documents and an updated Summary of Changes listing can be found on our Proposition 39 web page at

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.
