Chevron Installs Solar Power at USPS in No. California

Chevron Energy Solutions completed a 910-kilowatt solar power system for the United States Postal Service (USPS) mail center in Northern California which, when combined with other energy-efficient upgrades onsite, will lower annual electricity purchases by almost 11 million kilowatt hours.

The Oakland project, which will help the Postal Service cut energy purchases by more than one third, spans a rooftop area nearly the size of two football fields. At major postal centers in San Francisco, West Sacramento and other locations in Northern California, these high-efficiency and alternative power improvements are expected to save the Postal Service more than $2 million per year in energy costs. The Oakland USPS is one of dozens that Chevron Energy Solutions is developing at mail facilities in California, Arizona, Nevada and Hawaii under a multi-year contract with the Postal Service.
