Imagine a locally owned & operated factory that handcrafts high quality solar panels that are installed on our local Claremont and Pomona rooftops.
CHERP Locally Grown Power is creating the
first ever, locally-based, non-profit
solar panel assembly factory.
We are building a brighter, cleaner and more community-oriented future for Claremont and Pomona.
The assembly factory will have a small footprint of only 4,000 ft², but create 213 middle class manufacturing and construction jobs. When you include indirect jobs, there will be 763 new jobs in total at peak production.
Installing locally made, 6,000 CLGP solar systems will save our LMI households $6.5 Million every year, will be maintained by cap-and-trade carbon-credit funding and are projected to last 25+ years.
Monthly savings - an increase in Disposable Personal Income (DPI) - are spent locally, increasing a family’s quality of life and growing the local economy. DPI spending ($6.5 Million per year) increases city revenues by 12% and state revenues by a 2:1 ratio.
