The energy produced by the three systems will meet 90 percent of the Chaffey Community College's energy needs and is expected to save the district $28.5 million in energy costs over the life of the project. The system is comprised of solar car- port structures on parking lots at Chaffey College and its campuses in Fontana and Chino, all in San Bernardino County. The project is expected to produce nearly 10 mil- lion kWh of energy in the first year, which is the equivalent to powering approximately 1,375 average homes in California annually.
