The San Gabriel Valley Energy Wise Partnership (SGVEWP) is a partnership between Southern California Edison (SCE), Southern California Gas Company (SCG), the San Gabriel Valley Council of Governments (SGVCOG) and the 30 cities in the San Gabriel Valley in SCE territory. The Partnership between SCE and the SGVCOG began in 2009, and SCG joined the Partnership in 2013. This program is funded by the California Public Utilities Commission (CPUC) Local Government Partnerships Program.
The SGVEWP assists cities in the San Gabriel Valley in reducing their energy consumption and greenhouse gas emissions to create a more sustainable future for the entire region. Specifically, the Partnership provides resources and supports the implementation of energy efficiency projects at municipal facilities and helps to engage the community.
The SGVEWP hosts energy efficiency trainings for City staff, organizes educational workshops and events for community and business members, undertakes and supports other community education and outreach efforts, and hosts other special events to promote the reduction of energy usage within the region. Cities also receive incentives for completing energy efficiency projects at their facilities. Through the SGVEWP, cities are also eligible for funding and additional long-term energy efficiency planning efforts.
Since 2009, the SGVEWP has been extremely successful in helping to reduce the energy consumption within the region. These are just a few of the SGVEWP's accomplishments since that time:
60 projects completed in SGVEWP cities
Completed projects reduced energy consumption by more than 7.5 million kilowatt-hours. This is equivalent to the GHG emissions of 1,101 passenger vehicles for 1 year and the carbon dioxide emissions from the electricity use of 719 homes.
Over $1.1 million in estimated averted electricity costs
City incentives from SCE of more than $450,000
Attended 124 community events to promote energy efficiency opportunities
Hosted 33 community workshops
Hosted 29 LED Holiday Light Exchanges at holiday community events
Made contact with more than 8,000 residents
