In a ceremonial flipping of the energy switch yesterday, Southwestern College and SunPower Corp. dedicated the installation of a 3.2MW solar power system on the college's Chula Vista campus. Southwestern College estimates that the solar energy project will help offset the college's energy costs by approximately $600,000 annually.

"It makes sense to use the clean, renewable resource of the sun to power our college sustainably," said Dr. Melinda Nish, superintendent/president of Southwestern College. "We think this is an investment of Proposition R dollars that will continue to pay dividends for the college community for many years to come."

"Southwestern College can rely on its high quality SunPower solar systems to deliver guaranteed performance for the next 25 years or more," said Howard Wenger, SunPower president, business units. "It is extremely rewarding to help our educational institutions thrive using power from the sun."

According to estimates provided by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency, solar power systems installed at Southwestern College will avoid production of more than 2,600 tons of carbon dioxide emissions annually, the equivalent of removing almost 13,000 cars from California's roads over the next 25 years.
