Caltrans Solar Farm Reduces Energy Consumption by Two-Thirds!

Imagine that you could reduce energy consumption at your house by two-thirds. Would you do it? Caltrans would, and, in fact, Caltrans has! 

Caltrans has constructed a one mega-watt solar farm in Fontana, California, that powers a LEED gold-certified traffic management center in District 8. The facility—the largest solar farm in Caltrans—reduces grid-based energy consumption by two-thirds. It's part of Caltrans' commitment to preserving and enhancing California's assets by minimizing the impacts of our facilities.

Check out the Fontana solar farm in the video below.
