Maximizing the Impact of Prop 39 Funds
9:00 am - 12:00 pm
Over the next five years, Prop 39 will bring hundreds of millions of dollars to California community colleges for energy efficiency programs.
This is welcome support for the system, but if campus energy programs are to achieve their full potential, Prop 39 grants will need to be supplemented with funds from other sources and integrated into the susainability programs that are being planned and implemented on community college campuses.
For the first year of Prop 39 implementation, and possibly beyond, community colleges and K-12 schools will each have a separate set of guidelines to follow in order to receive funds.
This interactive seminar at the 2013 Green California Community Colleges Summit will provide an in-depth look at the guidelines for community colleges, as well as strategies that have enabled campuses to make the most of their investments in efficiency.
The speakers include professionals with decades of experience creating and implementing green programs for the nation's largest higher education system.
Topics included in the session will include:
Prop 39 Guidelines for Community Colleges
Find out how implementation will work in the community colleges system. Get briefed by those directly involved in developing these guidelines.
Find out about innovative approaches to energy needs, from Automated Demand Response to on-site generation, incentives and funding for such projects, and the significant financial benefits they can bring.
Green Revolving Fund
Find out how you can use your savings to support ongoing sustainability efforts on your campus.
Using the Sustainability Template
The Sustainability Template developed for California community colleges outlines best practices that are vital to the design and implementation of sustainability plans. Find out how you can use this tool to integrate your Prop 39 projects into your campus wide programs. You will learn about the many innovative and sustainable projects and practices implemented at Mt San Antonio College; the three San Mateo County Community Colleges at the California Institute of Technology.
