Plan for the Future

The California Energy Design Assistance (CEDA) program encourages the design and construction of high-performance projects that offer economic, health and environmental advantages to building owners, building occupants, and the public.


It pays to get an early start on energy efficiency  

  • Customer segments served:  Commercial, Public, High-rise multifamily, Industrial, and Agricultural
  • New Construction and/or major alteration

  • Must be in design phase or have customer willingness to modify design to improve energy efficiency

  • Exceed standard practice, code and current design

How does the CEDA program work?

  1. Enrollment - You provide schematic information about your building through our Energy Design Assistance application
  2. Preliminary Analysis - Together we perform a real-time evaluation of energy-efficiency measures and bundle potential whole-building strategies for further analysis
  3.  Final Analysis - You determine the strategies bundle that best aligns with your project goals, from which projected energy savings and utility incentives are determined
  4. Verification - We confirm your project was constructed to plan and issue a final report for you and your utility provider
  5. Incentives - Incentives will be issues for the strategies implemented in your project


Willdan is the third-party implementer and energy efficiency service provider. They will work with you to provide intelligent energy analysis so you can make informed energy decisions.
