Energy Savings Projects to Impact Parking lots at Fontana City Hall and Police Department

City Hall and Police Department Parking Lot Construction

Fontana, Calif.- Parking stalls in the Fontana City Hall and Police Department lots are limited beginning Monday, December 9, 2019, through May/June 2020, due to construction on energy savings projects.

Visitors are encouraged to park in the designated two-hour customer only parking stalls on Nathan A. Simon Way. Additional parking stalls can be found along Seville Avenue/Civic Center Drive. 

The first energy-saving project is a solar project, which consists of the installation of solar roof panels on both City Hall and East Annex roofs, as well as solar carports in the City Hall and Police Department parking lots. Phase 1 is now underway. Once complete, temporary fencing will be removed and allow for parking in the lot. Phase 2 will then commence with work lasting until May/June, depending on weather and unforeseen conditions. 

The second project is the installation of six (6) Electric Vehicle (EV) charging stations, and work will commence within the same timeline.

The third project is the installation of a microgrid at both the City Hall and the Police Department parking lots. This work consists of installing battery storage, microgrid controllers, and two additional dual-directional car charging stations. This will allow for both energy saving and redundancy power to City Hall and the Police Department. This project is currently in the design phase and City staff is developing a work schedule.  

For questions or additional information, please contact Public Works Project Coordinator Shawn Matejcek at (909) 350-7649 or at SMatejcek@fontana.org.
