SNEW SERVICES: Public Sector

Local Governments, Special Districts, K-12 School Districts, Tribes:

If you are a local government, special district, K-12 school district, or tribal entity located in PG&E’s Sierra Nevada territory, you can gain access to SNEW’s no-cost energy efficiency program. Our services and expertise increase the capacity of the public sector to identify and plan projects, take advantage of financing opportunities, and implement on-the-ground money-saving and energy-saving projects. We support public agencies in  addressing common barriers (budget constraints, limited staff capacity and expertise) by providing a dedicated energy efficiency project manager. 

Enroll in SNEW to receive staffing capacity to plan and assess energy use, manage and complete energy efficiency projects, as well as track and navigate funding opportunities. We will assist you in finding qualified energy efficiency installers and help manage projects from start to finish. 

The SNEW program is funded through the CPUC public purpose program charge on your PG&E bills, therefore our services are provided at no-cost.
