Energy Efficiency Saves SLO County $600,000 per year (Ind. Report)
San Luis Obispo County
Date: 2018-10-24
In the Golden State, San Luis Obispo (SLO) County officials report the county government's energy efficiency efforts have cut its energy costs by 15 pct for an annual savings of between $600,000 and $700,000 since 2010. The county currently spends about $4.5 million per year on electricity and natural gas.

To reach its energy cost cutting goals, the county partnered with PG&E and San Luis Obispo County's Energy Watch Partnership to use low-interest financing and utility rebates and incentives for a project that included: upgrading incandescent lighting to energy efficient LEDs; heating and cooling systems; energy control systems; and others. Future upgrades include: installation of solar panels; energy storage technologies that help reduce peak-demand energy needs; and upgrading thermostats.

Date: 2017-06-19
In San Diego, sustainable energy storage batteries manufacturer iDemand Energy Storage Inc. reports the completion of engineering work on a $4.1 million solar-plus-battery storage project for five buildings operated by Scantibodies Laboratory Inc., a biochemical manufacturer and research facility based in Santee, Calif. Construction is expected to get underway in July for completion by the year end.

The contract to make uninterrupted-energy-supply (UES) battery systems capable of storing and discharging up to 1.078 MWof solar energy was awarded to iDemand by SunFusion Solar Inc., also of San Diego.

The client aims to shave peak-load electricity demand during the latter part of the day by using excess energy stored and discharged from the battery systems. The current Scantibodies contract calls for 2 MWh for the five-building load.
