Through a competitive RFP process, Climatec was selected to develop a comprehensive energy solution. High efficiency lighting systems were installed at each location with motion sensors to maximize energy savings during unoccupied times. Building Automation Systems and HVAC upgrades were implemented at City Hall, Police Department, Field Services, and Recreation Center, which allowed facilities personnel to optimize runtimes and scheduling. Additionally, a 30kW solar photovoltaic generation system was designed and installed by Climatec’s renewable energy team to offset the demand of the water fountain at City Hall and resume its operations.
Climatec’s budget neutral solution positioned the City to set an example for environmental stewardship in California Municipal Market. The City drastically reduced CO2 emissions, cut energy and operational costs by $230k annually, and is saving 90,000 gallons of gasoline each year. City employees are relieved to finally experience the comfort of maintained room temperatures and improved indoor air quality at major buildings like City Hall and Police Headquarters. Thanks to Climatec’s renewable energy solution, the City is now able to run the fountain during daylight hours.
