The University of California at Riverside is getting a clean energy face lift thanks to a $2 million grant.

Under the two-year project, the school is getting solar arrays, advanced battery storage, vehicle charging stations, an electric trolley, and a grid management system that charges vehicles with solar energy.

2 megawatts (MW) of solar and 2 megawatt hours of lithium battery storage systems are being installed at three locations on and near campus. Solar energy will charge vehicles on campus and throughout Riverside.

The University’s Center for Environmental Research and Technology at Bourns College of Engineering, which does research on clean technologies, won the a ward.

In partnership with the City of Riverside and Riverside Public Utilities, UC Riverside engineers will design methods to direct the solar energy to electric vehicle charging so that it minimizes loads on the grid and demands for fossil fuel electricity.
