Building a Greener Future Together
Our partnership program provides support to local governments and institutions to assist them in achieving a joint vision of sustainability. SCE works closely with partners to address key issues that are barriers to achieving this vision and develop a long term energy efficiency strategy.
The Statewide Energy Efficiency Collaborative (SEEC) is a new alliance to help cities and counties reduce greenhouse gas emissions and save energy.
SEEC provides education and tools for climate action planning, venues for peer-to-peer networking, technical assistance and recognition for local agencies that reduce greenhouse gas emissions and energy use.
SEEC is a collaboration between California’s four Investor Owned Utilities and three statewide non-profit organizations:
• ICLEI – Local Governments for Sustainability
ICLEI - Local governments for Sustainability is a nation-wide local government membership association focused on climate protection and sustainability. ICLEI conducts workshops and training for local governments on key steps they can take to reduce greenhouse gas emissions. ICLEI also develops and delivers a suite of resources to aid local governments in implementing measures that increase energy efficiency and reduce greenhouse gas emissions.
• The Institute for Local Government
ILG is the research and education affiliate of the California State Association of Counties and the League of California Cities. ILG’s California Climate Action Network provides the Beacon Award to recognize and celebrate cities and counties for saving energy, conserving resources, promoting sustainability and reducing greenhouse gas emissions.
• The Local Government Commission
LGC offers inspiration and networking opportunities to local elected officials and other dedicated community leaders who are working to create healthy, resource-efficient communities. LGC holds webinars on energy efficiency strategies, annual statewide conferences on greenhouse gas reduction and energy efficiency best practices, and provides peer to peer networking opportunities.
