title

Adopt a resolution authorizing an agreement with the City/County Association of Governments for the County to manage and staff the San Mateo County Energy Watch Program, for the term of January 1, 2019, through December 31, 2019, in the amount of $250,000.

BACKGROUND:

Under the auspices of the California Public Utilities Commission (CPUC), Pacific Gas and Electric Company (PG&E) offers Local Government Partnership (LGP) programs that use public goods funds paid by ratepayers on utility bills to fund energy efficiency projects in the PG&E service areas of the local government’s jurisdiction. The City/County Association of Governments (C/CAG) has been the LGP in San Mateo County since 2009.

 

On December 9, 2008, your Board authorized the execution of an Agreement between the County and C/CAG, for the County to provide staff services for the newly established San Mateo County Energy Watch Program (SMCEW) from October 9, 2008, through March 31, 2011, in the amount of $750,000. Your board authorized similar agreements for the 2012 through 2018 program cycles. The 2018 Agreement expires on December 31, 2018.


The SMCEW program has consistently met established energy-savings goals as set forth by PG&E. The 2018 calendar year program cycle energy savings goals for kilowatt hours and peak kilowatts are expected to be met or exceeded by year end.

 

DISCUSSION:

C/CAG has executed a LGP contract with PG&E to implement the SMCEW for calendar year 2019 (Attachment A - Board Memo). The proposed agreement between C/CAG and the County (Exhibit A - Resolution) is subsequent to the LGP contract between C/CAG and PG&E.

 

This proposed agreement between C/CAG and the County requires County staff to perform work to meet the General and Specific Conditions and Contract Work Authorization (Conditions) of the LGP contract between C/CAG and PG&E. This scope is consistent with previous agreements between C/CAG and the County for staff services to administer the program. Through this agreement, County staff will administer and implement the SMCEW program, including updating the existing program management plan and outreach materials for 2019, providing updates to program stakeholders through presentations, providing customer outreach, coordinating energy efficiency projects countywide to achieve energy-savings goals, and preparing reports and invoices to PG&E and the CPUC on behalf of C/CAG. Through this program, County staff also coordinate the Regionally Integrated Climate Action Planning Suite (RICAPS) effort, which provides countywide climate action planning technical assistance to C/CAG, the cities, and the County.

 

SHARED VISION 2025:

Approval of this agreement contributes to the Shared Vision 2025 outcome of an Environmentally Conscious Community by contributing to reducing indoor and outdoor energy usage and associated greenhouse gas emissions at local municipalities, schools, farms, non-profits, and business and residential customer sites.

 

County Counsel has reviewed and approved the agreement and resolution as to form.

 

FISCAL IMPACT:

There is no impact to the General Fund.
