Gateway Cities COG is proud to partner with SoCalREN!
Join Now!The Southern California Regional Energy Network (SoCalREN) Public Agency Programs offer customized support and resources to help public agencies save energy and money and lead their communities on the pathway to zero net energy and greater sustainability.
GCCOG is proud to partner with SoCalREN to bring their suite of services to the Gateway Cities! We’re leveraging our local knowledge and strong relationships with public agencies in the Gateway sub-region to bring SoCalREN’s no-cost support on energy, demand, and water-saving projects to our communities.
Together, we’ll ensure SoCalREN’s highly valued programs are accessible for public agencies, especially those supporting underserved and hard-to-reach communities, in the Gateway Cities.
SoCalREN’s Public Agency Programs include:
Guides public agencies from start to finish through energy efficiency projects. Services include audit and technical services, financing support, simplified procurement, and incentive application support.
A new way to access SoCalREN’s Project Delivery Program support services, this program uses normalized metered energy consumption (NMEC) to measure energy savings at the meter.
Provides up-front construction financing for small to midsize projects at 0% interest. Can be used to bridge the delay between construction and On-Bill Financing (OBF) or other sources of funds not immediately available.
All of these services are provided by SoCalREN at no cost to Gateway cities. A number of Gateway Cities have already enrolled in SoCalRen and are already reducing costs and becoming more energy efficient. If you would like to enroll your city to reap the benefits of this program, join now at socalren.org/join.
