Fullerton Commits to $8.4Mn Energy Efficiency Project (Ind. Report)
Fullerton, Calif, Noresco
Date: 2022-03-11
In the Golden State, the City of Fullerton (pop. 139,000 +-) reports it has contracted with energy efficiency, resiliency and infrastructure solutions specialist NORESCO to implement an $8.4 million energy efficiency project guaranteed to save $12.1 million during the contract period. Funded entirely from generated savings, the project demonstrates that energy savings can help local governments tackle deferred maintenance while also expanding smart city technologies and distributed energy resources.

A ground-mounted photovoltaic system at the main water plant will provide renewable energy, and carport-mounted photovoltaic systems at city hall and the police department will provide shaded parking in addition to renewable energy. Fifteen dual port integrated electric vehicle chargers throughout the city will provide public access to clean transportation fuel and generate revenue for the city. The project will also enable the city to replace critical air-conditioning equipment that is at the end of its useful life and make other energy efficiency updates to building systems.

The upgrade of approximately 7,700 lighting fixtures with new LEDs will reduce energy consumption and extend the lifespan to at least 20 years. Additionally, NORESCO will assist the city in work with Southern California Edison to convert nearly 600 pole lights to LED technology. Smart city technology in parks will include improved lighting controls and motion activation, capable of providing greater public safety benefits.

The project also provides decarbonization benefits and is expected to reduce the city’s annual emissions of carbon dioxide by 2,793,572 pounds. The total expected reduction in greenhouse gases equates to planting 1,306 acres of trees, providing air quality improvements to the community.

The project includes a rigorous commissioning and measurement-based verification plan to ensure energy usage savings and operational success. It will also help prepare the city for conversion of series streetlight circuits to LED technology. Completion of the design package, cost calculations and budgets to convert a particularly problematic circuit will provide data the city needs to secure financing and then move forward with conversion.

SoCalGas Facilities Switch to 100 pct Renewables (Ind. Report)
SoCalGas
Date: 2021-09-10
In the Golden State, Las Angeles-based Southern California Gas Co. (SoCalGas) reports it has begun purchasing renewable electricity under Southern California Edison's (SCE) Green Rate Program everywhere the gas utility is eligible for service by SCE. Including this new arrangement, SoCalGas estimates that it will purchase nearly 53.7 million kilowatt hours of power from renewable sources each year, reducing greenhouse gas emissions by 38,000 metric tpy.

This electricity is instrumental in powering a gas infrastructure that serves SoCalGas's 22 million customers today and can distribute cleaner fuels in the future. A total of 69 operating facilities, representing more than 80 pct of all electricity demand at these facilities, will now use renewable power from the electrical grid. This purchase places SoCalGas among the largest SCE renewable energy customers.

The purchase of 100 pct renewable electricity under SCE's Green Rate Program includes five Community Choice Aggregation (CCA) programs that SoCalGas subscribes to within the SCE territory.

In addition, SoCalGas is in the process of replacing 50 pct of its over-the-road fleet with electric, hybrid, renewable natural gas, and fuel electric vehicles by 2025 and replace its fleet with zero emissions over-the-road fleet by 2035.

SoCalGas, a subsidiary of Sempra, is committed to achieving net-zero greenhouse gas emissions in its operations and delivery of energy by 2045 and to replacing 20 pct of its traditional natural gas supply to core customers with renewable natural gas (RNG) by 2030.

University Earns $1.18Mn for Greenhouse Gas Reduction (Ind. Report)
California State University Dominguez Hills
Date: 2021-01-08
In the Golden State, the California State University Dominguez Hills (CSUDH) in Carson is reporting receipt of over $1.18 million in performance payments from the Clean Energy Optimization Pilot, a four-year, $20 million effort for reducing greenhouse gas emissions.

The Southern California Edison (SCE) administered program payments are funded through SCE's cap-and-trade auction revenues and is based on actual metered results. Success is measured on greenhouse emissions avoided, rather than the standard method of measuring reduced energy use.

In qualifying for the payment, CSUDH upgraded its natural gas absorption chillers with electric chillers, and one large natural gas boiler with eight small condensing staged boilers for a 57 pct reduction in natural gas usage, a 2.8 million gallons drop in water usage in one year, and significantly cut to CSUDH's greenhouse gas emissions. Other energy savings initiatives included installation of new LED lighting and smart sensors in several campus buildings.

SoCalGas, UCSB Tout Energy Efficiency Projects (Ind. Report)
SoCalGas, Southern California Gas
Date: 2020-06-22
In the Golden State, Southern California Gas Co. (SoCalGas) and the University of California Santa Barbara (UCSB) have announced completion of two joint energy efficiency projects that will save UCSB 66,000 therms per year of energy -- equal to removing about 350 metric tpy of greenhouse gas emissions.

Both projects were part of California's joint Energy Efficiency Partnership between state universities and investor-owned utilities. Over the last five years, SoCalGas has supported 184 energy-efficiency projects, saving university campuses 6,000,000 therms of energy -- a $6 million savings -- and providing more than $6,300,000 in incentives through this state program.

The first of the two UCSB projects began in 2018 as part of the university's high opportunity projects and programs (HOPP's) initiative. SoCalGas and Southern California Edison co-funded the project which investigated how best to update two important laboratories at the university.

The utilities conducted an energy management plan to document and list the savings, costs and measures to implement an energy efficient system. The utilities identified multiple measures to reduce energy consumption in the building's lighting and HVAC systems by installing occupancy sensors, wireless thermostats and low-power LED lights. The campus also added high efficiency dedicated natural gas boilers to each building. A new chilled water system including a cooling tower, and pumps were also installed. The project resulted in natural gas savings of 60,959 therms, and the university received an incentive from SoCalGas of $152,000.

UCSB also installed an ozone laundry system to support its laundering of uniforms and sports gear for the university's athletic department which was eligible for a rebate from SoCalGas in the amount of $5,850 and will save the university about 5,880 therms of energy.
