The City of Chico, CA, in partnership with Southland Energy and PG&E, participated in the Sustainable Solutions Turnkey (SST) program. The SST program implements energy-saving projects at facilities and uses the expenses saved from the energy reduction and maintenance costs to pay for the design and construction of the projects.
During the summer of 2020, the Chico City Council authorized the execution of Phase I of the SST program. After reviewing utility bills and energy consumption, the wastewater treatment plant was determined to be the largest consumer of energy for the city, and therefore the focus of many projects identified for Phase I of the program.
The projects in Phase I will pay for themselves through energy costs savings in approximately seven years, and will continue to provide both energy efficiency and continued energy costs savings for years to come.
