Passed by California voters in 2012, Proposition 39 closed a tax loophole generating approximately $550 Million annually funding the Clean Energy Job Creation Fund.

This 5 year program starting with fiscal year July 2013-June 2014 is available to all California public schools and an excellent opportunity to fund energy efficiency and clean energy projects.


To take advantage of this program, schools are required to perform an energy audit and submit an energy expenditure plan to the California Energy Commission (CEC) or California Community Colleges Chancellor’s Office (CCCCO). All plans need to meet a Savings-to-Investment Ratio (SIR) of 1.01 to be eligible.  Annual progress reports as well as an end of project final report are required to comply with program guidelines.


California schools have been partnering with PacificWest to streamline the process, maximize project value, and keep schools best interests first and foremost. 

Services performed include energy audits and energy expenditure plans necessary for funding award approval. Additional services available: design through Division of the State Architect (DSA) approval, bid procurement support, construction management, and reporting services.
