REGISTRATION IS CLOSED FOR THIS EVENT.
Prop 39, the landmark California legislation that allocates about $500M/year for energy upgrades in public schools, is transitioning from concept to implementation. Dian Grueneich, former California PUC Commissioner and a national energy efficiency leader, will provide an update on what that means for California in terms of energy savings, impacts on public schools, job creation, and possible influence on future energy policy. Dian will give a brief overview on her own career choices that led to her current position, and will focus her talk on what we know about Prop 39, how it impacts energy efficiency and jobs in the K-12 schools sector, community colleges, and across California, and the expected outcomes from this unique opportunity.
