What Is SEEC?

The Statewide Energy Efficiency Collaborative (SEEC) provides support to cities and counties to help them reduce greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions and save energy. SEEC is an alliance between three statewide non-profit organizations ( ICLEI - Local Governments for Sustainability, USA,the Institute for Local Government, and the Local Government Commission) and California’s four Investor-Owned Utilities. It builds upon the unique resources, expertise and local agency relationships of each partner.

SEEC provides the following at no cost:

  • Education and tools for climate action planning and reducing energy use
  • Opportunities for peer-to-peer networking
  • Technical assistance and recognition for local agencies that reduce GHG emissions, save energy and adopt policies and programs that promote sustainability
  • Demonstration that “the whole is greater than the sum of its parts” through leveraging resources and expertise from seven partners, to help local agencies

Since its beginning 2010, SEEC has offered hundreds of in-person and webinar trainings, and released guidebooks, tools, templates, and case studies tailored to the needs of California local governments.
