Chevron Energy Solutions has agreed to partner with the City of Patterson, Calif., to improve the city's sustainability, which will include solar installations, energy-efficiency programs and substantial energy cost reductions.

Working with Chevron Energy Solutions, the city will install solar panels to generate power for the city's sewage treatment plants, corporation yard, and senior and aquatic centers. It is anticipated the solar installations will provide over 90% of the facilities' energy requirements. Changing streetlights to more efficient LED fixtures is also expected to save over $200,000 per year in electricity expenses.

"This partnership will help us deliver on our sustainability goals and, at the same time, our economic development goals," says Mayor Luis Molina. "This project will help us both improve our environment and the attractiveness of our business climate. Both are critical goals for us."
