California District To Save $7 Million with Energy Upgrades

Nuevo, CA-based Nuview Union School District is launching a sustainability program guaranteed to save more than $7 million in its first 20 years.

The project, designed and built by Chevron Energy Solutions, "includes solar generation capacity at 3 district locations, upgraded HVAC systems and energy-saving LED lighting," according to a news release.

In addition to reducing the amount of electricity the district purchases by approximately 85 percent, the project will provide science, technology, engineering and math (STEM) labs.
