Partner Profile
In 2007, the City of San José adopted its Green Vision, focusing its environmental efforts on ten ambitious goals. For goal #3, the City is currently aiming to transition 100 percent of its electricity to renewable sources by 2022. By the end of 2012, 3,514 solar PV systems with a total capacity of 47.8 MW had been installed in San José.

For municipal facilities, the Green Vison goal translates into approximately 50 megawatts (MW) of renewable electricity by 2022. Current sources of on-site renewable energy include biogas engines at the joint San Jose / Santa Clara Water Pollution Control Plant (WPCP) and solar photovoltaic (PV) panels on various municipal facilities. Upcoming energy and renewable energy projects include several solar installations at additional municipal facilities and work with an energy services company to evaluate and then implement measures across the City's portfolio of buildings.
