Western Riverside Energy Leader Partnership (WRELP)
WRELP is a local government partnership that between Southern California Edison (SCE), Southern California Gas Company (SoCalGas), and 12 jurisdictions in the WRCOG subregion: Calimesa, Canyon Lake, Eastvale, Hemet, Lake Elsinore, Menifee, Murrieta, Norco, Perris, San Jacinto, Temecula, and Wildomar.
WRELP is designed to optimize opportunities to achieve short-and long-term energy savings, reduce utility bills, and enhance the level of comfort in municipal, commercial, and residential buildings. WRELP promotes energy efficiency by increasing community awareness and participation in energy efficiency, demand response and self-generation programs.
WRELP Program Initiatives:
- Leveraging local government resources and work with local communities to maximize program reach.
- Achieving short-and long-term energy savings and demand reduction for local government participants and the communities they serve while reducing greenhouse gas emissions.
- Providing energy information to communities and providing training and education for local government facility managers, energy managers, and planners to help identify and implement energy efficiency opportunities.
- Developing energy action plans that share goals and specific actions to ensure that adequate, reliable, and reasonably-priced electrical power and natural gas supplies are achieved and provided through policies, strategies, and actions that are cost-effective and environmentally sound for the subregion’s consumers and taxpayers.
WRELP is funded by California utility ratepayers and administered by SCE and SoCalGas under the auspices of the California Public Utilities Commission.
