Since its inception, C.A.S.H. has partnered with the Green California Schools & Community Colleges Summit & Expo to help provide workshops on pertinent green school facility funding issues.
This year, C.A.S.H. is pleased to announce that, in partnership with the School Energy Coalition (SEC), we will provide two excellent workshops that will include panels of green school facility experts as follows:
The Water/Energy Nexus for School Sites
This SEC and C.A.S.H. session will provide an update on the two highest priority environmental concerns for school facilities in California: Energy and Water. The Proposition 39 program and new state water regulations (Governor’s Executive Order B-29-15) present challenges and opportunities for schools seeking to comply with new requirements while meeting safety concerns. If done correctly, project funding and utility savings for schools await! Join us and find out what you need to know to access funding and manage resources and investments wisely, from agency representatives and experts in the field – including case studies from schools that are moving forward with these projects.
Money, Money, Money, for Green Projects
This workshop will focus on providing timely information on state and federal funding for energy and water projects in light of new water mandates and the state’s goals to address climate change. Hear the latest information on the November 2016 State School Bond Initiative, local bonds, new funding available for water and energy projects in the 2015-16 State Budget, the Cap and Trade Expenditure Plan, federal Qualified Zone Academy Bonds (QZAB) and Clean Renewable Energy Bonds (CREBs). We will discuss how schools are moving forward with new and existing school projects through accessing these funds. Also, free feasibility studies for solar projects that may move schools to zero-net energy (ZNE) and more rebate funding! Don’t leave money on the table – leading experts on school facilities will show you how they are accessing these funds and programs.
