Center for Sustainable Energy’s Response to the Transformative Climate Communities Program Draft Guidelines, Fourth Revision

CSE supports the direction of the Fourth Revision Draft Guidelines as well as the Strategic Growth Council (SGC) TCC Program initiatives. SGC has conducted a comprehensive and iterative process to arrive at these Fourth Revision Draft Guidelines, with appropriate depth, scope, and scale for this foundational document. SGC’s praiseworthy inclusion of clearer and more concise energy planning and clean energy technology elements will greatly strengthen the program’s capability to deliver a diverse array of benefits to TCC Program residents and communities. CSE encourages the expeditious approval of the guidelines to begin the deployment of actual programs and services.
