Photovoltaics and CHP Project
The City of San Diego made an agreement with Onsite Energy to proceed with a comprehensive $3.6 million renovation of San Diego police head-quarters, which will reduce energy consumption and generate clean power from photovoltaics and a combined heat and power (CHP) system. The CHP system is expected to generate 3.5 million kWh of electricity and produce thermal energy in the form of hot water and chilled water. The photovoltaic system is expected to produce an additional 45,000 kWh per year. Energy efficiency measures should save the City about a million kWh of electricity and 11,000 therms of natural gas per year. The project will benefit from approximately $718,000 in utility incentive payments from state and utility-sponsored programs that provide cash incentives for CHP, photovoltaics, and energy-efficiency capital improvements.
