School Energy Efficiency Stimulus (SEES) Program
The School Energy Efficiency Stimulus (SEES) Program will provide funding to upgrade heating, air conditioning, and ventilation (HVAC) systems in public schools and also to replace noncompliant plumbing fixtures and appliances that fail to meet water efficiency standards.
The California Energy Commission (CEC) will host a remote-access workshop on the School Energy Efficiency Stimulus (SEES) Program. During the workshop, CEC staff will present proposals for potential changes to the draft program guidelines and solicit feedback from workshop participants. The SEES Program Workshop Presentation is now available on the SEES Program Workshop page at https://www.energy.ca.gov/event/workshop/2021-04/school-energy-efficiency-stimulus-program-workshop.
