TEC Brings Public Sector Energy Expertise to the Inland Regional Energy Network

Southern California’s inland area boasts a distinct regional identity and robust local culture. Unfortunately, the region is also experiencing increased impacts from climate change. That’s why the region is taking its energy future into its own hands and establishing a regional energy network.

The Inland Regional Energy Network, or I-REN, will provide programs and services to meet region-specific energy needs, including in hard-to-reach communities. TEC is proud to partner with I-REN to create and deliver two of their new programs. 

“It gives me great pleasure to formally congratulate the TEC team on being awarded the I-REN Public Sector Programs contract!” said Casey Dailey, Director of Energy and Environmental Programs at the Western Riverside Council of Governments. “We are very excited to work with the amazing team that has been put together and are eager to get started.” 

We’re excited too! Together, I-REN and TEC will design and implement new public sector programs that will empower local governments, special districts, and tribal communities to proactively manage their energy use. We’ll also provide technical assistance for energy improvements in municipal facilities like city halls, police stations, and public parks. The new programs will even offer funding and financing (e.g., incentives) to bring energy efficiency projects within financial reach.
