The City of Lemoore, Calif., and Chevron Energy Solutions are starting the construction of an expansive solar installation to power domestic water wells, a wastewater treatment plant, the Cinnamon Municipal Complex, Police Department, and several other facilities throughout the city.
The project is expected to generate more than 3 MW of electricity and reduce purchases from the electric utility by close to 100 percent for most of the facilities included. Over its life, and after paying all its costs, the City of Lemoore is expected to save close to $45 million.
This will be the third project Chevron Energy Solutions has undertaken for the City of Lemoore in the past 5 years. It is expected the project will be completed in May, 2014.
