SoCalREN Case Study: Ventura Unified School District Interior Lighting Upgrades

In March of 2020, Ventura Unified School District (VUSD) completed an interior lighting upgrade project at 14 of their elementary and middle schools. VUSD secured funding through Proposition 39 and wanted to ensure their funds were used as effectively as possible. The District utilized SoCalREN’s expertise to provide financial analysis, navigate utility energy efficiency programs, and ensure the project met all Proposition 39 requirements. To take advantage of the maximum amount of incentives, VUSD participated in SCE’s Public Sector Performance-Based Retrofit Program, which measures energy savings based on actual metered energy consumption.
