Chevron is proposing to take the former Fillmore refinery and make it a valuable community resource. Chevron has evaluated various commercial uses for the property over the last few years including both commercial development and solar energy options. Solar has been selected as the best use for the site at this time. (Chevron will retain ownership of the property and will continue long-term groundwater remediation activities at the site). The Ventura County Planning Commission approved a Conditional Use Permit (CUP) for the solar project following a public hearing May 5, 2016. The Ventura County Board of Supervisors approved the groundbreaking Energy Services Agreement between the County and Ventura Solar, LLC on April 19, 2017. Read more about this agreement here.
Cenergy Power has leased the former Texaco refinery/Pacific Coast Pipeline (PCPL) site to build the Fillmore Ventura Solar Project. The solar project will be constructed in accordance with the CUP approved by Ventura County in May 2016. Cenergy Power is working on confirming the details of their project and plans to begin construction in early 2018 with a goal of being in operation by mid-2018. For more information on Cenergy Power, please see attached overview and visit their website at www.cenergypower.com.
