Jurupa Unified School District to Save More Than $34 Million with Solar and Energy Upgrades

Chevron Energy Solutions Completes Largest K-12 Solar and Energy Efficiency Program in Riverside County

The Sacramento Bee

Jurupa Unified School District and Chevron Energy Solutions today announced the completion of a 2.7 megawatt solar and energy efficiency program expected to reduce energy costs at 27 school sites and save the District more than $34 million. The project added solar photovoltaic panels mounted on parking and shade structures at nine campuses; replaced 400 air conditioning units, most of them more than 20 years old; and upgraded more than 21,000 lighting fixtures. Coupled with comprehensive energy education curriculum content, the transformative program is designed to inspire students to learn about – and experience – clean energy technologies and concepts.

The program is expected to cut Jurupa Unified School District's electrical utility purchases by 26 percent and reduce carbon emissions by more than 3,463 metric tons, equal to removing about 679 cars from the road.
