The City of Westminster approved a partnership with Southern California Edison (SCE) that provides enhanced incentives for energy savings projects of city facilities and funding for outreach, educational and marketing of "green" construction in the city.

This program will provide approximately $1,000 a month in savings for the City of Westminster.  This is a national movement to incorporate energy efficiency into our everyday business practices and it is vital for our community to encourage innovations in the way we build, purchase material and use our available resources. 

The program will provide rebates and incentives, appliance recycling, training, residential and commercial energy surveys, lighting programs, program brochures and other materials. Through this program the City will receive fund to help with energy savings projects like the new chamber of Commerce building and Police Facility.  These two buildings follow the building guidelines as established by the Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED), a Green Building Rating System, developed by the U.S. Green Building Council.
