Today the California Energy Commission (CEC) approved changes to the Proposition 39 program guidelines. Among other things, the changes revise the definition of an eligible energy project by allowing efficiency measures and/or clean energy installations in or at one or more school sites within a Local Education Agency (LEA) rather than limited to one school site. C.A.S.H. supported this modification, which will help districts layer projects across their sites to achieve the needed 1.05 Savings to Investment Ratio (SIR). The revised guidelines also include provisions related to solar projects and Power Purchase Agreements, including making it easier for them to meet the SIR requirements.
