CEERT Sponsored Projects
In addition to the programs CEERT undertakes directly, we also fiscally sponsor the work of some allied not for profit groups whose clean energy goals and mission our Board has determined are closely aligned with our purposes.
CEERT staff provide Fix the Grid, Latino Environmental Advancement Project, and Western Gird Group with administrative and advocacy support services, such as financial accounting, energy technical support, and strategic policy consultation.
To find out more, follow the links to our sponsored projects:
Building Decarbonization Coalition
A statewide alliance that works to decarbonize California’s homes and workplaces, largely by substituting electricity for fossil fuels in space heating, water heating, cooking, dishwashing, and clothes drying. Coalition members include utilities, community-choice electricity providers, city governments, manufacturers, builders, real estate firms, and NGOs. The Coalition released a Roadmap for Decarbonizing California Buildings in January of 2019, and by the end of that year, 40% of state residents lived in a local jurisdiction that had adopted a building decarbonization policy.
Latino Environmental Advancement Project (LEAP)
Latino Environmental Advancement & Policy (LEAP) is a San Joaquin Valley environmental justice community institution. LEAP’s mission is to increase awareness of the public health, environmental and economic justice benefits available to Central Valley communities from increased reliance on clean energy resources and technology. LEAP works to empower Latinos, immigrants and youth to achieve sustainable environmental justice while improving community health.

Western Grid Group
Western Grid Group (WGG) was formed as West Wind Wires in 2003 as a network of former state regulators and clean energy project developers in the Western US to plan transmission access to renewable energy resources. It was renamed Western Grid Group in 2008 to reflect the fact that its policy work seeks to accelerate the incorporation of a broad range of cost-effective, low-carbon technologies into the electric system. Securing development of the infrastructure needed to achieve carbon reduction goals remains WGG’s primary focus. Learn more.
