BEPAnews™ Article Recap:
SACRAMENTO, CA - State schools Superintendent Tom Torlakson has declared that school districts can apply for part of $65 million that is available to those that wish to plan energy-efficiency projects under the California Clean Energy Jobs Act.

The $65 million in available marks the second round of funding under the 2012 voter-approved initiative to create clean jobs and decrease school operating costs. The first round of funding totaled $105 million.

Many San Joaquin County districts have begun taking energy-efficiency measures even prior to the Energy Efficiency Act. Manteca Unified has saved millions under its own energy-efficiency initiative to conserve power in all schools. Lodi Unified has installed solar panels at four Stockton campuses and the district office to help offset energy costs.
