Dodgers Dreamfield at Gonzalez Park
Climate Resolve is thrilled to partner with the Los Angeles Dodgers Foundation (LADF), GRID Alternatives (GRID), and FivePoint to bring LADF’s largest, most innovative Dodgers Dreamfield project to Gonzales Park in Compton. The project will include six KEBA electric vehicle charging stations that will tie into two PV solar carports in Gonzales Park’s parking lot. These charging stations will provide public EV charging services to the Compton community.
The solar carports will be part of approximately 275 kW of PV solar that GRID will install throughout Gonzales Park and on an adjacent city fire station. The solar arrays will be net metered with Southern California Edison to offer significant energy cost savings to the city.
Within Gonzales Park, LADF will renovate the facility’s existing Jackie Robinson Baseball Stadium into a Dodgers Dreamfield and will also construct new softball and little league fields. The completed $1.5M renovation project will endow Gonzales Park with state-of-the-art ballfields. It will also provide the Compton community with a fitness and training zone courtesy of Kershaw’s Challenge; STEM and sustainability education for local students; a PV solar workforce development program managed by GRID; and youth baseball and softball programing through the Dodger RBI program.
Be ready for a stellar grand opening celebration at Gonzales Park around Jackie Robinson Day in April 2021!
Climate Resolve is working in the East San Fernando Valley to engage with the community around the benefits of electric vehicles. The team is focusing on conducting outreach around issues of climate change and the benefits of driving electric vehicles including cleaner air, less pollution, lower maintenance costs, and healthier communities. The effort is meant to increase equity and access to EVs within working communities and communities of color. Additionally, the team is also working on a series of short-form videos outlining benefits and resources that are available through LADWP to the City of Los Angeles residents. The videos will highlight opportunities that are available for communities right now and encourage participation from communities that have historically lacked access to these resources.
