Energy & Sustainability Programs
The Sonoma County Energy Independence Program (SCEIP) is a new opportunity for property owners to finance energy efficiency, water efficiency and renewable energy improvements through a voluntary assessment. These assessments will be attached to the property, not the owner and will be paid back through the property tax system over time, making the program not only energy efficient but also affordable.
Sonoma County Energy Watch (SCEW) is a partnership between Sonoma County and Pacific Gas and Electric Company (PG&E) designed to help you save energy and money while reducing your impact on the climate. We provide energy efficiency services to local governments, nonprofit organizations and small businesses.
