Chevron Energy Solutions, a unit of Chevron Corp., and the city of Brea, Calif., have begun construction of a solar and energy efficiency project expected to save the city more than $13 million in net energy savings over the life of the project.
According to Chevron Energy Solutions, Brea will become the largest municipal producer of solar energy in Orange County once the 1.8 MW of solar panels are installed at the Community Center, Civic and Cultural Center and Reservoir City Pump Yard. Chevron Energy Solutions designed the solar systems and will build, install, operate, maintain, measure and guarantee the systems' performance for the city.
The project is expected to be completed in 2011. Solar production data and other project data will be available to the community on an informational display at the Community Center and on the city's website.
