group has several goals to increase collaboration on renewable energy projects, coordinate and develop local expertise, increase energy self sufficiency, stimulate the regional market for renewable energy products, potentially create jobs and develop the capacity of the university to support renewable energy efforts, said McNall.
Chico News Blog Archive Group Formed to Promote Renewable Energy
NSRE consists of representatives from major public and private entities, including the county of Butte, Sierra Nevada Brewery, Enloe Medical Center, city of Chico, Chico Unified School District, CSU, Chico, and many other private and public sector entities.
Pollution Control Plant.In 2001, Chico based FAFCO, a producer of solar pool heating panels, installed a Thermal Energy Storage system using FAFCO IceStor tanks to reduce 410 kw of summer peak electric demand. The tanks are frozen at night, and the ice cools the building during the day. The $128,000 project was partially funded by a California Energy Commission Grant.CSU, Chico new Student Services Center is one of the first CSU campus buildings registered under the national standards for environmentally conscious, sustainable buildings. The building Student Services Center will be built following the standards established by Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design.
Nguyen Tan said, of the inspirations with forming the NSRE was recognizing that most organizations and firms do not have the internal expertise to evaluate renewable energy projects. There is a steep learning curve. Now we hope when other individuals want to consider a renewable energy project, they will be able to immediately access a local pool of technical expertise by contacting NSRE. is currently forming a technical advisory group made up of university, community and industry specialists. The group is cataloguing recent renewable energy projects and developing ties with larger statewide groups. In the long term, the group will encourage members to implement renewable energy projects, increase funding from federal, state and foundation sources into the region, assist renewable energy related businesses to locate in the region and possibly develop a renewable energy institute at CSU, Chico.
NSRE cites the following recent projects completed or underway in the region as indicators of strong interest in renewable energy:The county of Butte in expected to complete in June 2004 the installation of 975 kilowatts (kw) of photovoltaic Air Max 95 360 Black power cells in four arrays to serve three buildings on the County Government Center in Oroville. The $8.4 million project is supported by a 50 percent PG grant and a loan program from the state Public Utilities Commission.With a population of 13,000, the city of Oroville has 200 watts of solar energy per person. Oroville was proclaimed Solar City USA on Earth Day 2003 by the city mayor. The city solar installations include Oroville Police and Fire Headquarters (93 kw in August 2003), Oroville City Hall (47 kw in August 2003), Oroville Public Works Yard (34.7 kw in November 2002), Pioneer Museum (10 kw in August 2003), and the State Theater (11.3 kw in August 2003).Butte County Rice Growers Association will begin in 2004 to use solar power to run the huge rice dryers that handle about 250 Air Max Bw Ultra
CONTACT: Joe WillsDan Nguyen Tan,Councilmember, City of ChicoScott McNall, Provost, CSU, ChicoA group of Butte County public and private sector leaders recently formed North State Renewable Energy (NSRE) with the mission of promoting the application of renewable energy and conservation best practices and technology in the region. The group, led by California State University, Chico Provost and Vice President for Academic Affairs Scott McNall and City Councilmember Dan Nguyen Tan, envisions a stronger economy and a better environment by transforming the region into a leading center of renewable energy.
of us recognize that renewable energy provides both bottom line economic benefits and savings, as well as helps address increasing environmental health problems, said Nguyen Tan.
part of Sierra Nevada on site wastewater treatment plant, will become an increasing part of the gas used in the fuel cells. The project is partially supported by the California Public Utilities Commission Self Generation Incentive Program.Chico based land development firm Heritage Partners completed in December 2003 the installation of a photovoltaic power system located on the rooftop of 500 Orient Street and an adjacent building. The system output is 96 kw and contains 612 solar modules. The project is projected to produce in excess of 156,000 kilowatt hours annually, which should account for approximately 75 percent of the electrical power needs of the 20,000 square foot building. The project cost more than $800,000 with a 50 percent rebate from the California Energy Commission.In November 2002, the Sewerage Commission Oroville Region installed the first solar powered wastewater treatment in the United States. It is the largest dual tilt solar array in the world and among the 10 largest in the nation. The 60 acre plant serves 15,000 families and numerous industries daily in the greater Oroville area. The power generated from the solar array will provide enough electricity to treat 80 percent of the wastewater. The 622 kw solar system received an alternative energy generation rebate check of $2,342,000 from PG the largest renewable energy system rebate in PG history. The total cost of the solar system was $4.8 million before the rebate.The city of Chico is moving forward with a proposed solar facility at its downtown parking structure. The facility would generate 83 percent of the electricity used by the parking structure. With $360,000 in possible rebates, the project would cost the city $440,000. The city conducted a comprehensive review of all city owned properties and is exploring financing options for a 600 to 700 kw solar power plant at its Water Nike Air Yeezy Boost
million pounds of rice per year at its Riceton Highway operation. The $1.5 million project is the first of its kind and will generate 200 kw about 30 percent of the energy needed for the facility. The project should pay for itself in 11 12 years so the growers will see cost benefits over time.Chico based Sierra Nevada Brewing began in April 2004 a $5 million installation of four fuel cells that will generate a total of about 1 megawatt of power, or just below the amount of electricity the company needs. The brewery will also use a heat recovery system from the cells to further reduce the firm costs. In addition, generated as Nike Air Max 95 Essential Black
Membership in NSRE is open to community members, organizations and firms interested in promoting the application of photovoltaic, solar thermal, wind, geothermal, biomass, fuel cells and other non conventional technologies. The group is focusing its efforts in the North State counties of Butte, Glenn, Tehama, Shasta, Yuba and Colusa.
NSRE is partnering with Modesto based Great Valley Center on a $50,000 grant application to support the Department of Energy Million Solar Roofs Initiative Small Grant Program for State and Local Partnerships.
