About the Statewide Energy Efficiency Collaborative

The Statewide Energy Efficiency Collaborative (SEEC) is an alliance between three statewide non-profit organizations and California’s four Investor-Owned Utilities. SEEC leverages the diverse expertise and resources of its implementing partners to meet evolving local government needs to save energy, reduce greenhouse gas emissions, and accelerate climate action.

SEEC is funded by California utility customers and administered by Southern California Gas Company, San Diego Gas & Electric Company, Pacific Gas & Electric Company and Southern California Edison Company, under the auspices of the California Public Utilities Commission.
