Money Back Solutions: Schools - Pre-K to 12

Managing energy costs is an important lesson to learn

Every year California schools spend around $700 million on energy– that’s about the same amount spent annually on school supplies. Our rebates, incentives and expert advice can make it easier to get money-saving energy management projects approved and implemented.

Resources for Proposition 39

The California Clean Energy Jobs Act (Prop 39) provides up to $550 Million per year to improve energy efficiency and clean energy in public schools. PG&E offers incentives and rebates for energy efficient technologies that can help stretch Prop 39 dollars further and meet cost effectiveness requirements. Find out the ways in which PG&E can help with the Prop 39 application and implementation process by signing up for our Quarterly Prop 39 Bulletin by emailing

*Updated* Data Authorization Form. The California Energy Commission (CEC) requires K-12 Prop 39 applicants to submit two forms - the Prop 39 Data Authorization Form (CEC-12) and the Facility and Service Account Information Form (CEC-24). These forms should be sent to CEC and to each utility. PG&E requires these forms in order to provide the CEC with school energy consumption data from now through 2023. If you are a PG&E electricity or natural gas customer, please follow these steps to complete the form:

  1. Download the forms.
  2. Sign, scan, and email the Data Release Authorization Form (CEC-12) and the Information Form (CEC-24) to as well as to the CEC. Please note that the Information Form (CEC-24) should remain in electronic format – it should not be scanned by a copier along with the Data Release Authorization and it should not be handwritten.

Energy Saving Tips

Creating a healthy, energy-conscious learning environment begins with strategic thinking about your energy use. The following tips will help get you started.
  • Optimize your energy management system to reflect usage, changing weather, and peak electric situations.
  • Light and cool only occupied spaces. Occupancy sensors and time switches can reduce energy consumption in infrequently used areas like auditoriums and break rooms.
  • Replace atmospheric boilers with condensing combustion boilers.
