Document Description
This action is a repeal of the Energy Conservation Assistance Act (ECAA) regulations. The ECAA program is a loan program administered by the Energy Commission (CEC) to provide loans to local governments and public schools to fund energy efficiency and renewable energy projects. The ECAA regulations were adopted in 1983 in order to specify certain eligiblity criteria and procedures to be followed by the CEC in implementing ECAA. The 1983 regulations have never been revised and have not kept up with changes in the ECAA statute. The 1983 regulations are out-.of-date, no longer relevant or unnecessary for the administration of the ECAA program. Given the changes to the ECAA statute over time, the ECAA program can now be implemented proficiently without regulations. Repealing the ECAA regulations will not affect how the ECAA program is currently implemented and will benefit the public by eliminating outdated and irrelevant information which confuses applicants.
