      Strategic Energy Innovations (SEI) is seeking a Project Coordinator to

      SEI is a small non-profit organization based in Marin County.  Through
      funding from federal, state, city, and private organizations, SEI helps
      communities, school districts and multifamily housing developments design
      and implement energy efficiency and conservation programs.  We approach
      energy savings from several different perspectives and on many levels.
      Drawing from a broad range of practical knowledge, we create networks of

      facilitate implementation of energy efficiency and demand reduction
      strategies through the use of energy performance contracts and traditional
