Outlined in its Energy Action Plan, the City of Camarillo has established a municipal energy reduction goal of 10% relative to 2008, by 2020. The City recently completed a ten year Energy Performance Contract that resulted in savings of over 15 million kWh. City Hall, City Corporation Yard, and Water Department facilities received upgrades such as:
- Installation of high efficiency HVAC equipment
- An energy control system
- Office lighting lamps and ballast retrofits
- Installation of high efficiency electric motors for a water pump station and two wells
- Additional improvements have been implemented at the City’s Corporation Yard including the installation of a 75 kW solar array. This solar power system has resulted in an 82% decrease in electricity consumption.
