When you make operations more efficient and reduce the greenhouse gas footprint of city buildings, you save money and set an example for businesses and citizens. PG&E will work with your facilities managers to improve efficiency. We can advise you on simple improvements that are low cost or no cost to the local government.
PG&E provides comprehensive climate planning assistance from assistance with greenhouse gas inventories to training and guidance on climate action plans.
In addition to the resources offered above, the Statewide Energy Efficiency Collaborative (SEEC) provides tools and resources to local governments throughout California. The SEEC program provides webinars, peer-to-peer networking, online climate planning tools, and an award program to recognize local agencies that reduce greenhouse gas emissions and energy use.
Communities that are leaders in energy and GHG reduction were able to stretch their creative approaches even further with PG&E's Innovator Pilots program, which was available on a competitive basis to local, regional or sub-regional governments in 2010 and 2011. The Innovator Pilots are currently in their final stages, at which point their lessons learned and results will be shared with other communities.
