Jul 21, 2011 - Chevron Energy Solutions, a unit of US oil major Chevron (NYSE:CVX), today said it has designed and installed a 1.8-MW solar power plant for the city of Brea, California.
The solar system is part of an energy efficiency and solar project seen to yield USD 13 million (EUR 9.2m) in energy savings to the city over 25 years, Chevron Energy said.
Brea expects the solar system to reduce its electrical utility costs by 40% and offset 86,000 tonnes of carbon dioxide emissions a year.
Chevron will operate and maintain the system.
