Building 46 and 47
West Parcel Solar Project
date updated: 2/13/2018
This project will consist of the development of a solar power generation system on the area of campus commonly known as the "West Parcel," a triangular piece of land located west of Grand Avenue, south of the Temple/Amar intersection, and south of the “Christmas tree lot.” This ground-mounted system will generate two megawatts of electricity for the campus and will save the college a projected $480,000 in energy costs annually.
Site development will include the import of 140,000 cubic yards of soil from elsewhere on campus and conservation of a total of 17 acres of Venturan coastal sage scrub (gnatcatcher habitat) in two areas—the West Parcel and an expanded area of the existing Wildlife Sanctuary. The conservation lands have been set aside in perpetuity by a restrictive covenant.
Project Status: The construction phase is 10 percent complete. Upcoming activity includes major grading and soil import scheduled to begin once the gnatcatcher breeding season has ended.
Project Funding: Proposition 39 Clean Energy Grant and Loan funds, Edison Rebate funds and Unrestricted General Fund.
Project Completion: Spring 2019
Business and Computer Technology
This 87,000-sf complex would provide much-needed consolidation of business administration, accounting, management, computer information systems, office technology, and family/consumer sciences instructional programs. The two-building complex would include state-of-the-art technology that supports current teaching methods, including increased use of laboratory-based learning environments as opposed to traditional lecture classrooms.
Project Completion: Spring 2018
