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:
Project Delivery Program
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.
Metered Savings Program
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.
Revolving Savings Fund
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.
Pathway to Zero
Offered in conjunction with the services of SoCalREN’s energy efficiency programs and provides a comprehensive view of energy opportunities for facilities in disadvantaged communities, including energy efficiency and distributed energy resources.
Public Power-Up is an immerging program seeking to install EV charging stations in disadvantaged communities, public schools, and other public agencies with no-cost technical support. Project funding will be available for a limited amount of time.
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.
