Funded projects: Santa Clarita

Funded Projects: The City of Santa Clarita, CA

City of Santa Clarita, CA
Project: Greenhouse Gas and Energy Reduction Program
Funded By: American Recovery and Reinvestment Act's Transit Investment
Total Awarded: $4,620,000

The city of Santa Clarita continues its "Go Green" initiative with the construction of new solar canopies and carports at its state-of-the-art "LEED Gold Certified" Transit Maintenance Facility.  These new additions, when combined with the Transit Maintenance Facility’s existing solar paneled canopy, will generate 97% of all electricity needed to power the facility. As a result, Santa Clarita will save approximately $135,000 a year in electricity bills. The new solar panels will be placed on top of three canopies that will generate electricity while also providing shade for the city’s transit fleet. Additional panels will be placed on top of the bus wash building. The project is a result of a $4.62 million award the city of Santa Clarita received through the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act’s Transit Investment in Greenhouse Gas and Energy Reduction Program. Santa Clarita was selected as one of 43 agencies to be awarded funds through this grant program. The city also applied for a reimbursement from Southern California Edison's California Solar Incentive Program. Southern California Edison approved Santa Clarita’s application for a total of $260,000 for reimbursement over five years.

"The City of Santa Clarita regularly utilizes eCivis and over the last three years, we have successfully garnered over $55 million in grant funding that has resulted in many projects for our community."
–Ken Pulskamp, City Manager
