The Sustainable Energy Roadmap (SER) is an 18-month initiative focused on providing free resources and technical assistance to San Joaquin Valley jurisdictions to improve their sustainability and social equity goals. The program, launched in January 2015 and sponsored by California's Strategic Growth Council, uses an innovative online roadmap platform and hands-on engagement to assist jurisdictions and disadvantaged communities where sustainable energy potential is abundant, but resources and information are scarce. With help from the SER team, participating jurisdictions receive resources and support from industry experts to develop a customized policy roadmap containing guidance to set and pursue high-impact goals related to smart growth, transportation, land use, climate, and energy. 

Below, you'll find our participants’ Sustainable Energy Roadmaps, outlining the goals and actions taken, and supported with relevant case studies, reports, and tools to support local and regional sustainability efforts throughout the San Joaquin Valley — whether you're a resident, business, installer, or local public agency. Please click on our participants below to explore each City's tailored roadmap and track the latest progress and achievements designed to accelerate clean energy market and social equity advances by making sustainable energy development easier, more cost-effective, and accessible for all.
