Climate change and rising energy costs have brought resource efficiency to the forefront of many communities' agendas. Our thoughtful and dedicated team works with municipalities to identify goals, design appropriate policies and pioneer successful programs designed to solve their unique challenges. By providing exceptional technical assistance, leveraging resources and building community engagement, SEI helps communities reach their climate and energy goals and achieve greater sustainability.

With funding from the California Solar Initiative’s Research Design & Development, the SEED Fund demonstrated a business model that leverages a revolving fund mechanism to develop regional group purchases of solar photovoltaic.
Sustainable Energy Roadmap (SER) provides a critical pathway for San Joaquin Valley communities to become resilient. This effort is focused on supporting Valley communities to set and pursue goals related to smart growth, transportation, land use, climate and energy. The program is sponsored by California’s Strategic Growth Council through Proposition 84 funding.
