About the Higher Education Efficiency Performance (HEEP) Program

Higher Education Efficiency Performance

The HEEP Program provides a comprehensive approach to higher education's energy efficiency needs by tailoring customized solutions for your facility. The program will account for your unique facility needs, budget concerns, and energy efficiency goals at no-cost to participants. HEEP works by combining the traditional energy efficiency program with a holistic, whole-facility approach, dispensing energy efficiency services, technical assistance, and incentives to support your energy goals.

Who is Eligible?

The HEEP Program is available to existing higher education facilities within the SCE, PG&E, SDG&E, or SCG service territory who pay the Public Purpose Program surcharge, and are owned, operated, or occupied by:

How Does This Program Work?

HEEP merges both new and established concepts to lower energy bills and grow energy efficiency. HEEP takes flexible incentive options and adds them with the traditional deemed, custom, and meter-based offerings along with our longer-term Strategic Energy Management (SEM) offering. Each participant will have a dedicated CLEAResult account manager to support them through their entire HEEP participation from start to finish. These knowledgeable managers will assist participants in achieving energy efficiency, including completing program participation requirements and identifying sensible solutions that meet their budgets and facility needs.
