The San Gabriel Valley Energy Wise Partnership (SGVEWP) is an alliance between the San Gabriel Valley Council of Governments and Southern California Edison to bring energy savings to the San Gabriel Valley through innovative public education and energy efficiency projects. The program seeks to reduce energy usage in the region by approximately 5 million kilowatt-hours by 2012.
This unique partnership brings SCE and local governments together to make the San Gabriel Valley a leader in energy efficiency. Today’s increasingly-complex climate is putting a new focus on energy consumption and sustainability. With efforts to “go green,” find savings in ever-tightening government budgets, and plan for new, state greenhouse gas emissions regulations, identifying opportunities to increase energy efficiency is at the forefront of municipal and community planning. SGVEWP is helping the San Gabriel Valley capitalize on opportunities that will bring measurable energy savings through these program intiatives:
Leverage local government resources and work with local communities to maximize program reach.
Achieve short and long-term energy savings and demand reduction for local government participants and the communities they serve while reducing greenhouse gas emissions.
Act as a clearinghouse for energy services by providing energy information to communities and providing training and education for local government facility managers, energy managers, and planners to help identify and implement energy efficiency opportunities.
Develop energy action plans.
Implement energy efficiency projects.
