The California Energy Commission is working with a number of key stakeholders to implement the California Clean Energy Jobs Act (Proposition 39):
- California Department of Education
- California Community Colleges Chancellor’s Office
- California Department of Finance
- California Public Utilities Commission
- California Workforce Investment Board
- California Conservation Corps
The California Clean Energy Jobs Act makes changes to corporate income taxes and, except as specified, provides $550 million annually from the General Fund to the Clean Energy Job Creation Fund, or the Job Creation Fund, for five fiscal years beginning with the 2013-14 fiscal year.
The recently signed Senate Bill 73 spells out the details of how the grant funds will be allocated to California’s K-12 schools and community colleges, and includes a number of requirements to ensure Proposition 39 funds deliver the expected energy efficiency and cost savings. The Energy Commission was designated through legislation to lead a process with its counterpart State agencies to develop guidelines, which will be posted on this webpage when complete. The public will have opportunities to offer public and written comments at future workshops.
If you are interested in learning more about the Proposition 39 funding opportunities or to participate in the public process, please sign up for the Proposition 39 listserv on the Energy Commission's main listserv sign-up page. More information on the process will be posted as soon as it is available.
