Despite the myriad challenges we had in 2020, the Energy Goals campaign with TEC was a huge success. We were surprised and excited by the level of enthusiasm and participation from staff. We hope to use this success to build on in future engagements. Thank you to the TEC team for all of your efforts!

The PEAK program provides teachers with all the materials we need to teach the program in a meaningful and successful way. The staff is always available to assist us and answer any questions or concerns we might have. Whenever I run out of supplies, It takes me only one call to have someone from PEAK deliver whatever I need. The PEAK staff is very flexible and is always willing to adjust to the school schedule when presenting assemblies or supporting teachers with labs.

Maria Rubio, PEAK Teacher, Lowell Elementary School

I highly recommend [TEC’s] OSTEP for any after school program. This is a free program, run by professional, friendly staff members who promote STEM concepts and conservation of resources. Best of all, It’s FUN!”

Site Leader, Torrey Pines Elementary

I am so thankful to have had the opportunity to bring PEAK to our students. It is an awesome program that has our students experiencing international learning and having so much fun doing it! After our first training with PEAK, the teachers raved about it to their peers. All of our teachers and staff love participating in this great program!

Yvonne Nolasco, Maestra de PEAK, Recursos Comunitarios del Área de la Bahía (Bay Area Community Resources)

At first I was a bit skeptical about the SoCalREN Public Agency Program, it all sounded too good to be true. But, I must say, they have exceeded all my expectations and then some. They have become not only an integral component of our energy management team, but an extremely valuable asset to the school district as well. Their level of expertise and professionalism has been unsurpassed. They have suggested things that we never thought of, and weren’t even on our radar. They have done significant amounts of work on our behalf that has resulted in substantial savings of both energy and money.

Energy Educator/Manager, Conejo Valley Unified School District

I can truly say we would have not gotten this far this fast in such a cost effective manner without SoCalREN’s guidance and technical assistance every step of the way. In short the SoCalREN Public Agency Program is a fantastic program to assist local governments in energy efficiency that will pay dividends for years to come.
