Brawley, California - Assemblymember Eduardo Garcia will be joined by students and staff from Brawley Union High School as he will be recognizing the impact of state funds awarded to the school for clean and energy efficient projects tomorrow Friday.

“These funds that were awarded to the Brawley Union High School District improved energy efficiency and expanded clean energy generation in Brawley classrooms—and in the end helped replace and install programmable/smart thermostats that have Wi-Fi Programmable thermostat capabilities to Brawley High School, Desert Valley High School and the Renaissance Day Care Center,” stated Assemblymember Eduardo Garcia.

The California Clean Energy Jobs Act (Prop. 39) will generate revenue for five fiscal years, beginning with fiscal year 2013-14. Under the initiative, roughly $550 million annually is available for appropriation by the Legislature.  Eligible local educational agencies (LEAs) — including county offices of education, school districts, charter schools and state special schools—are eligible and can request funding by submitting an energy expenditure plan application to the California Energy Commission.
