The South Bay Cities Council of Governments (SBCCOG) partner, the Southern California Regional Energy Network (SoCalREN) Public Agency Programs, is proud to offer the Pathway to Zero Program for public agencies. The Pathway to Zero Program helps cities, counties, school districts, and other public agencies along the path towards zero net energy (ZNE), or producing enough renewable energy on-site to meet annual energy needs. So while a “pathway to zero” might not sound like it goes too far, the Pathway to Zero program is helping public agencies along a journey to an exciting energy future.

The Pathway to Zero Program provides public agencies enrolled with SoCalREN with a customized review of their distributed energy resource (DER) and sustainability options, exploring technologies like photovoltaic (solar) and battery storage, demand response, and water efficiency. Then, the SoCalREN helps agencies complete combined energy efficiency and DER projects with project management, support with incentive applications, assessing and applying for financing, and more.
