Sustainable Energy Roadmap

Sustainable Energy Roadmap (SER) provided a critical pathway for San Joaquin Valley communities to become resilient. This effort was focused on supporting Valley communities to set and pursue goals related to smart growth, transportation, land use, climate, and energy. The program was sponsored by California’s Strategic Growth Council through Proposition 84 funding.
