An excerpt from the letter:

We appreciate the opportunity to provide input on the Proposition 39 Program Implementation Draft Guidelines (guidelines). As you know, the public voted for the original measure with the understanding that schools will achieve real energy savings and that the state will provide sufficient oversight of the program. From AEE’s standpoint, it is critical that the voters’ mandate be carried out without delay and with maximum effectiveness – capturing energy savings from schools and other public buildings, putting Californians to work implementing these energy improvements, and freeing up resources that can be devoted to classrooms across the state. The guidelines present an important first step. School districts around the state are looking to these guidelines as they develop project expenditure plans. As you know, many of these districts lack sufficient staff and resources to evaluate proposals on their own. A wide range of energy businesses, including our member companies, are also prepared to work with schools to ensure they are achieving maximum energy savings and deploying the best solutions on-site. Clear guidelines and requirements will help shape a strong program that achieves the goals envisioned by the initiative.
