M. Update on SBESC Local Government Partnership policy changes – 1:10 pm

  • SBCCOG staff has been working with other partnerships, utility partners, and other agencies to try and secure future funding for partnerships and incentive/rebates for local governments. Staff has also been looking into other avenues of future funding.  Staff attended a SCE Workshop and a SCG webinar on Third Party Solicitations. These presentations explained how third parties could submit ideas for new types of programs to reach state goals.
  • As measures and rebates often expire without much notice, it is important that cities keep moving forward with city projects during this calendar year.  In addition, as the   environment for energy efficiency is changing it is unclear if incentive and rebates will be available to local governments in 2019 and beyond.
