The SoCalREN Experience
Public agencies enrolled in SoCalREN Public Agency Programs have a dedicated SoCalREN Project Manager to help them identify and complete energy efficiency projects. Below is the typical life cycle of completing an energy efficiency project with SoCalREN.
To access SoCalREN services, agencies participate in a kickoff meeting and sign an enrollment form. During enrollment, SoCalREN will assess your agency’s support needs and create a plan specific to your agency. To get started, visit socalren.org/join.
SoCalREN will analyze your agency’s energy use portfolio to help you identify the right energy efficiency projects for your agency.
Evaluation & Audit
SoCalREN will look into specific energy efficiency measures for your agency. Our technical consultants will help conduct in-person site audits and they will make recommendations about energy efficiency measures to be installed. SoCalREN will also help your agency weigh different funding and financing options for your project.
SoCalREN will help you define your project scope and procurement pathway. We will also provide resources to help you communicate with decision-makers at your agency about the project.
Construction will kick off on your energy efficiency project. SoCalREN will closely follow the construction progress through completion.
After construction close-out, SoCalREN will support you with reporting your energy efficiency project success, including preparing installation reports and case studies. We make sure that all the necessary documentation is submitted to secure incentives, if applicable to your project.
