Solar Panel at Recreation Center

Posted on October 2, 2017 at 4:33 PM by Communications Team

Solar Panel Project (Small)

As part of its Energy Efficiency Program, the City is installing solar panels at several locations throughout Fountain Valley, starting with the Recreation Center parking lot. A portion of the parking lot is currently fenced off to allow for the installation, which is expected to be completed by the end of October. The solar panels will allow the City to save on energy costs, generate clean energy and provide shade to parked vehicles. Installation of solar panels at the Center at Founders Village and the City Yard will follow.

In addition to installing solar panels at various locations, the City is also replacing the existing HVAC units for the Council Chambers and Recreation Center with new, energy efficient units. This upgrade is especially exciting at the Recreation Center because it will provide the gymnasium with heat and air conditioning for the first time. Exterior lighting at City facilities and parks have also been retrofitted with energy efficient LED fixtures.

Once completed, the Energy Efficiency Project will result in an estimated annual energy savings of $190,000 and reduce City facility related greenhouse gas emissions by 20%.
