Public Sector:

Local Governments, Special Districts, k-12 School Districts

Our programs increase the capacity of the public sector to identify projects, take advantage of financing opportunities, and implement on-the-ground money-saving and energy-saving projects. Through our partnerships and programs, we support public agency projects with long-term, community-wide benefits that empower local leaders to respond to the ever changing external conditions related to energy supply and demand, while preserving the rural charm and resilient future of the Sierra Nevada region.

If you are a local government, special district, or K-12 school district, you can benefit from many PG&E programs and services. These include providing industry expertise, assessing eligibility for funding and financing opportunities, streamlining the energy efficiency project planning and implementation processes, and developing greenhouse gas emissions inventories or energy / climate action plans.
