The Ventura County Regional Energy Alliance (VCREA), in partnership with the Community Environmental Council (CEC-SB), are launching their newest pilot program, kWh Countdown, funded by the California Energy Commission. kWh Countdown offers two primary services for businesses located in the cities of Thousand Oaks, Ventura, and Moorpark: 1) free energy benchmarking to all business that enroll; and 2) a limited number of comprehensive energy audits to businesses that demonstrate a willingness to invest in energy efficiency projects. These services offered through kWh Countdown are designed to help businesses save money on utility bills and invest in energy efficiency projects with confidence. The level of audit that businesses will receive are typically valued at over $5,000. Businesses are encouraged to apply as soon as possible as there are ample funds for audits and benchmarking for new participants.
There will be two kWh Countdown programs: Ventura County kWh Countdown (cities of Ventura, Thousand Oaks and Moorpark) and Lompoc kWh Countdown (City of Lompoc). Funding for each program is provided by the California Energy Commission. The Lompoc kWh Countdown program has an auditing budget of $70,000, whereas the Ventura County kWh Countdown has an auditing budget of $90,000.
