SoCalREN is excited to feature the City of Fullerton for this month’s agency spotlight! The City has been an active member of SoCalREN Public Agency Programs and the North Orange County Cities (NOCC) Energy Partnership since August 2017 and has demonstrated a strong dedication to implementing energy efficiency measures in their community.
Fullerton recently completed three successful lighting projects at their Plummer, Wilshire, and Transportation Center parking garages. The projects were made possible through Sourcewell’s procurement pathway, which streamlined the process, along with SoCalREN’s support along the way, including assistance for council approval on the projects. All of this collaboration and coordination paid off as construction was completed in an impressive three weeks! Not only did the projects greatly improve lighting quality and achieve energy and cost savings, they also increased safety in the three parking garages in the popular Downtown Fullerton area.
These projects achieved:
Over $14,900 in annual energy cost savings
Over $14,640 in utility incentives and $88,440 in On-Bill Financing
Over 121,930 kWh energy savings
29 metric tons CO2 avoided per year, equivalent to 3,263 gallons of gasoline consumed
The City of Fullerton’s energy efficiency efforts don’t stop there! The City is also actively working on installing a variable frequency drive (VFD) at their Hermitage Pump Station, which will allow them to reduce their pumping speed for maximum energy savings. SoCalREN has highly enjoyed working with the City of Fullerton and is excited to continue to support them in their commitment to energy efficiency!
