Why Advanced Lighting Controls?

The California Advanced Lighting Controls Training Program (CALCTP) is a statewide initiative aimed at increasing the use of lighting controls in commercial buildings. CALCTP will educate, train and certify licensed C-10 electrical contractors and state-certified general electricians in the proper programming, testing, installation, commissioning and maintenance of advanced lighting control systems. Such systems typically include dimmers, occupancy sensors, photo-sensors, relay modules and communication-based control devices. 

Through proper installation practices, advanced lighting controls have the potential to improve energy efficiency in commercial facilities across California and help achieve significant energy savings.

Who is CALCTP?

The CALCTP is a collaborative effort of the following utilities, government agencies and labor associations:

Leader in Energy Efficiency Savings

Southern California Edison (SCE) is a national leader in energy efficiency savings. Over the last five years, SCE's energy efficiency programs have saved 6.8 billion kilowatt-hours – enough energy to power 965,000 average Southern California homes for an entire year. In this period, the programs have reduced greenhouse gas emissions by 3.4 million metric tons, equivalent to removing 650,000 cars from the road. SCE offers its business customers comprehensive energy management solutions tailored to their specific needs such as energy efficiency audits and rebates and incentives for the installation of energy-efficient equipment and technologies.
