Low Income Energy Efficiency / Strategic Plan Goals

2009-2020 ‘California Long-Term Energy Efficiency Strategic Plan’:

  • By 2020, 100% of eligible and willing low income customers will have received all cost-effective Low Income Energy Efficiency measures and LIEE program will be an energy resource by delivering increasingly cost-effective and longer-term savings.

    Recently Signed SB 695 (Sen. Kehoe):

  • “The commission shall, by not later than December 31, 2020, ensure that all eligible low-income electricity and gas customers are given the opportunity to participate in low-income energy efficiency programs, including customers occupying apartments or similar multiunit residential structures.”

Strategic Plan Strategies (2009-2011)

  • Coordinate LIEE WE&T with Federal programs (The Green Jobs Act of 2007) and other state agencies

  • Incorporate the LIEE training needs into the Workforce training needs assessment

  • A trained LIEE workforce will accommodate future job demand and educate their communities in energy efficient practices

Perceived Workforce Need

  • LIEE Program is funded to service ≈1.12M eligible homes in 2009-2011, which is about 25% of the total # of CA LI homes.

  • Data suggests that the IOUs can meet these goals with current LIEE contractor workforce, but this is not definitive.

  • Growth of home retrofit industry may increase the LIEE program’s need for more weatherization workers.

  • Too early to tell.

The LIEE WE&T Pilot 2009-2010

  • Decision (D.) 08-11-031 authorized and set forth the requirements for the LIEE WE&T Pilots to be conducted during 2009 – 2011.

    • Designed to recruit and train residents of disadvantaged, low-income communities to install energy efficiency measures as part of the LIEE program, resulting in skill development, job opportunities and professional certification for participating residents.

    • The training program is carried out with involvement by an Investor Owned Utility (IOU), an accredited educational institution and a current LIEE contractor.

    • Each pilot will serve as a model for possible statewide implementation in the 2012 – 2014 LIEE budget cycle to drive green collar job creation.

    • Data on the Pilot outcomes will be tracked and reported on a monthly basis to provide important knowledge for the further development of “green collar job” training programs outside the scope of the LIEE program.

    • Total budget for Pilot is $300,000, which does not include the 60 percent of funding which should be obtained from outside sources.

The LIEE WE&T Pilot Goals

  • Pilot Goals

    • An accredited educational institution, an IOU, and a LIEE contractor must come together to create a certificated curriculum to train low income persons to become LIEE implementers

    • Develop a curriculum that is replicable statewide and create a certificate that is recognizable statewide

    • Reduce unemployment in disadvantaged populations while simultaneously increasing the hiring pool for the ambitious 2020 LIEE goals

The LIEE WE&T Pilot Participants

Winning Bidders

  • Los Angeles Trade-Tech College (LATTC) (Southern California Gas Company)

    • $174,690 fund request (outside funds from LATTC funds, LACCD Federal Green Job Corps Grant funds)

    • 87 trainees, $2008 per student

The LIEE WE&T Pilot Status

  • Pilot Status

    • November 2009- Memorandums of Understanding executed by Parties

    • December 2009- Contracts reviewed and executed by Parties

    • January 2010 - Program recruitment and curriculum finalization with IOUs and contractor input.
