The goal of the Proposition 39 Clean Energy Workforce Program Grant is to improve existing clean energy programs at California Community Colleges and to grow and strengthen the regional approach to clean energy workforce development. This specific grant targets occupations in the commercial, industrial and institutional sectors of energy efficiency and clean energy generation. Energy efficiency programs – for the purpose of this Prop 39 grant -reduce demand side energy consumption in commercial, institutional and industrial buildings.
The Proposition 39 grant funds the LA/Orange County Regional Program Improvement Project. This project aims to grow and strengthen the LA/OC Clean Energy Regional Consortium, made up of regional partners interested in improving LA/Orange County community colleges’ regional approach to clean energy workforce development. The project also aims to improve and expand existing clean energy programs at community colleges in the region.
