City solar projects

The City of Menlo Park has four solar installations. These are located at the Arrillaga Gymnastics Center, Arrillaga Gymnasium, City Corporation Yard, and Onetta Harris Community Center and are in full operation, producing renewable energy.

The solar installations
  • Offset approximately 80 percent of current PG&E energy use at these facilities 
  • Save over $461,000 in energy costs over the course of the 20-year power purchase agreements
  • Reduce 419 tons of greenhouse gas emissions from municipal operations

In addition, the City received over $71,000 worth of energy rebates from PG&E’s California Solar Incentive rebate program. The greenhouse gas emissions saved from the clean energy produced is equivalent to removing approximately 80 vehicles from the road annually.
