Energy Efficiency Climate Action Plan
About the Project
The Energy Efficiency Plan for the City of South El Monte is part of a unified regional framework for meeting long-term energy efficiency goals. This framework will allow the Energy Efficiency Plan developed for each city to function as a stand-alone document tailored to individual communities. The City and the San Gabriel Valley Council of Governments (SGVCOG) will be hosting a number of workshops and meetings to gather community input, which will guide the development of the Energy Efficiency Plan.
The Energy Efficiency Plan will:
Twenty-seven of the thirty-one SGVCOG member agencies are currently participating in the Energy Efficiency Plan project, which is funded by California utility ratepayers and administered by Southern California Edison (SCE). The funding was awarded to the SVGCOG to implement activities to achieve statewide energy efficiency goals.
- Summarize the City’s existing and future energy use
- Project the City’s existing future energy use (through 2020)
- Identify energy efficiency goals and targets
- Create an energy efficiency strategy to meet the City’s energy reduction goals
- Assist in meeting State and regional goals of greenhouse gas (GHG) reduction and long-term energy efficiency.
The project kicked off in July 2011 and will take place over the next 15 months. The anticipated completion of the project is October 2012.
