In early 2016, San Leandro partnered with Climatec to modernize existing infrastructure and move toward sustainability goals set forth by its City Council in a Climate Action Plan (CAP). The resulting program addressed energy and water infrastructure needs and proposed a feasible funding plan. Climatec also provided a savings guarantee that would cover total program costs. And with a $2 million grant from the California Energy Commission, the City also improved its Water Pollution Control Plant (WPCP), highlighted by a 1-megawatt solar power system.
The City has since met nearly half of its CAP goals and forged a path as a globally recognized “Smart City” with enhanced livability and connectivity. Today, San Leandro continues improving fiscal stability with strategic reductions in energy and water usage.
