Most public agencies recognize that energy efficiency is a high priority, but achieving it can be daunting without the proper expertise and resources.

The SoCalREN Public Agency Program is here to help.

What is SoCalREN?

SoCalREN was authorized by the California Public Utilities Commission (CPUC) in 2012 to harness the collective power of residents, businesses, and the public sector to achieve an unprecedented level of energy savings across Southern California.

Public Agencies

SoCalREN will identify energy saving measures and work side-by-side with your staff from design through construction to help you accomplish energy efficiency projects. All services provided by SoCalREN are provided at no cost, however agencies are responsible for all construction costs.

We will help arrange financing and handle the utility rebate incentive process on your behalf. In addition, we will provide access to on-call, high-quality energy retrofit construction professionals through the National Joint Powers Alliance (NJPA).

For agencies already participating in a public energy efficiency program SoCalREN can complement existing services so that goals are reached sooner.

Whether your agency is considering a building retrofit or a single measure such as retrofitting streetlights or water systems,  SoCalREN can help design and implement the project.  We are your trusted third-party experts.

the SoCalREN Public Agency Program services are available to the more than 700 public agencies in Southern California (map)

This program is administered by the County of Los Angeles and funded by California utility ratepayers under the auspices of the California Public Utilities Commission.
