USA: AQMD Awards Nearly $12.5 Million For Eight Renewable Energy Projects Throughout Southland

The South Coast AQMD has approved nearly $12.5 million to help fund eight renewable energy projects across the Southland to support clean air technologies such as plug-in electric vehicles.

The projects, dispersed throughout the Southland, will displace more than 11 megawatts (MW) of power typically generated through large, centralized fossil-fuel power plants. This amount of electricity could power 5,000 typical homes.

“These are the kind of projects we need to deploy on a large scale to tackle our severe air pollution problem,” said William A. Burke, Ed.D., AQMD’s Governing Board Chairman. “They will demonstrate a variety of zero-emission technologies while helping to reduce greenhouse gas emissions and increase our energy security.” AQMD’s Board approved the projects on Jan. 6.

The projects will generate electricity from renewable sources such as solar and biogas and utilize electricity storage technologies to provide off-grid power during peak demand hours. The eight projects include:

— Installation of up to 2 MW for a solar carport, electric vehicle chargers and a fleet of electric vehicles to be used in a car-sharing program at the City of Industry’s Metrolink train station;

— Installation of up to 50 kilowatt (kW) for a solar rooftop system, 1.5 MW battery energy storage system and the installation of electric vehicle charge stations at the CODA Energy facility in Santa Monica;
