There less than a year left for Prop. 39 funding. What do you know so far?
Did you know Prop. 39 funds are already earmarked for your school? Allocation is calculated annually by the CDE and is based on your ADA. You can call us, and we’ll be able to tell you exactly how much you’ve been allocated. Learn more about Prop. 39 here.
Did we mention what makes us unique is our ability to not only plan projects but to manage them? Our Discover-Solve-Manage process streamlines the process so administrators can keep their focus on what matters most – the students.
Phase 1: DISCOVER
ASHRAE Level 2+ Campus Assessment
In addition to the standard walk-through, each campus also receives a comprehensive health and safety inspection. This includes carbon monoxide and gas leak testing, asbestos, lead paint, electrical, moisture and mold detection.
Benchmarking and Energy Savings Calculations
Our energy engineers analyze your schools starting energy efficiency level and calculate estimated energy savings for recommended upgrades.
Funding Sources For Recommended Projects
Prop 39 covers most projects, but there are other grants, incentives and rebates to help stretch your projects further. We explore all of them for you.
Master Energy Plan
Your final report outlines all of the above and also provides a constructible project estimate, which meets all of Prop. 39 requirements.
Phase 2: SOLVE
Did you know, 92% of all Prop. 39 funds are used to upgrade lighting (50%) and HVAC units (42%)?
The lowest-cost solutions allow for the greatest savings for the investment and ensures funding is fully maximized while creating an optimal learning environment for your students.
Low-cost solutions may include:
- Upgrading lighting
- Replacing HVAC units
- Installing Solar PV
- Replacing old windows
- Upgrading water heaters
- Increasing insulation
Just think, the money you save annually can be reinvested into programs that may have been previously cut due to budget constraints.
Phase 3: MANAGE
Managing a lengthy, multi-year infrastructure project isn’t something many school administrators have time for. Our experienced project managers take charge of the entire project while making sure your school hits every important benchmark along the way so you can focus on what matters most — your students.
When it comes to schools, compliance is key. We are experts in working with the DSA, CDE and CEC to ensure your school meet all regulatory guidelines and keep you out of trouble!
