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.
