Chevron Testing Solar Technologies in California

Energy giant converts oil refinery to innovative solar panel facility
The Chevron test project includes 7,700 solar panels, and the facility will generate 740 kilowatts of electricity. Chevron has received the solar technologies to test from seven companies, and these companies were selected from a initial pool of 180 solar companies. The solar companies are based in the US, Germany, and Japan. The Brightfield project is expected to go for 3 years, and Chevron will decide at that point which technologies will be integrated into its facilities. In exchange for use and testing of its technologies, the solar companies will receive data about their technology, including how it performs under various weather conditions, and how it compares to other solar technologies.
