Tracking Progress Document: Proposition 39 (K-12) Program

The California Clean Energy Jobs Act (Proposition 39): A new tracking progress document is now available online. It is an 11-page summary of the California Energy Commission’s K-12 portion of the program. The document presents general information about the California Clean Energy Jobs Act in addition to specific features of the Energy Commission’s portion of the program, and program accomplishments that include energy measures approved, estimated energy savings and estimated job creation information, from the beginning of the program in fiscal year 2013/14 to August 2015.

This tracking progress document is one of many on the Energy Commission’s website that provides a basic summary of California’s progress toward a cleaner energy future.

June 19, 2015
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 http://www.energy.ca.gov/efficiency/proposition39/index.html.

Now Available: The Amendment Process for Approved Energy Expenditure Plans is now available.
Energy project changes are sometimes unavoidable. Local Educational Agencies (LEAs) with significant changes to approved energy expenditure plans (EEPs) can now submit amendments. Please refer to the Proposition 39: California Clean Energy Jobs Act - 2105 Guidelines (page 33 - Energy Expenditure Plan Implementation Changes) for the list of significant changes that require an amendment to an approved EEP.

If an amendment is required, please contact your Energy Commission Project Manager. The Energy Commission will confirm the amendment is required and the approved EEP will be made available under the Amendment subsection of the Energy Expenditure Plan Online System.

Once the Local Educational Agency completes all modifications to the EEP, the amended EEP is submitted back to the Energy Commission for review and approval, similar to the initial application submission process.

An EEP is allowed one amendment per fiscal year.
