The Ventura Partnership Program offers enhanced incentives for energy efficiency projects- higher amounts than going directly through the utility. The program is a tiered system providing increased incentives as cities complete more energy efficiency projects. Cities also work with their communities to satisfy outreach and information dissemination criteria to further move up the tier levels.
VCREA can provide facility audits, cost effectiveness calculations, field inspections, and equipment testing and analysis for developing, packaging, and completing energy-efficient retrofit projects for our partners.
Municipal entities can save big on utility expenses through implementation of a demand reduction strategy designed to reduce consumption at peak periods. VCREA provides consultations and information on these program offerings.
VCREA works with public agencies to develop and adopt policies and ordinances that encourage energy efficiency in all sectors of the community, potentially resulting in savings of millions of dollars in energy costs. By example, VCREA could work with local public housing authorities, hospitals and water agencies to assist with specific policies that promote energy efficiency.
VCREA can help your city and community assess the types of energy efficiency training and seminars that would help municipal staff, industry professionals, and local residents save energy. We work directly with the utilities to facilitate training and classes offered locally. We also sponsor and participate in local community outreach events to inform the public on energy conservation.
