      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 individuals and communities that are key to

      conducts market development for greenhouse gas reduction credits
      resulting from the installed energy efficiency retrofits.
