California workers’ compensation provider State Compensation Insurance Fund announced construction has begun on a solar, EV and energy storage portfolio at seven of its locations. Designed by ENGIE and JLL, the portfolio will consist of 9.8 MW of solar, 2 MW/4.3 MWh of energy storage and 150 charging stations.

“Breaking ground on this project is a huge step forward in our drive to reduce our use of fossil fuels, limit the load we place on local and statewide electrical grids, and improve air quality throughout California,” said Andreas Acker, Executive Vice President and Chief Administrative Officer at State Fund. “Increasing our efforts and investments around sustainability initiatives will bring a number of benefits to our customers, employees, and California as a whole.”

The State Fund construction sites are located in Vacaville, Pleasanton, Redding, Fresno, Bakersfield, Sacramento and Riverside.

“In addition to supporting State Fund’s greater environmental strategy, the construction helps the California economy during this critical time for recovery after the pandemic,” said Courtney Jenkins, General Manager and Vice President for Cities & Communities at ENGIE North America. “State Fund is truly a partner that aligns with ENGIE’s mission to help our customers decarbonize and optimize energy use.”

State Fund’s EV charging stations will be available to its employees and used by the company’s fleet vehicles. State Fund’s fleet currently includes eight battery electric vehicles, three of which are new long-range BEVs that allow employees to travel between State Fund locations while lowering their reliance on fossil fuels.

“JLL is proud to play an active role in initiatives that support adoption of renewable and sustainable energy like State Fund’s, a trend whose adoption is quickly accelerating,” said Kyle Goehring, Executive Vice President, JLL Clean Energy Solutions. “As a global company, we have an inherent responsibility to drive sustainability and corporate social responsibility efforts. We embrace technology to meet the needs of today and opportunities of tomorrow.”
