| The Bakersfield economy relies on agriculture, petroleum extraction and refining, and manufacturing. Greater Bakersfield (Kern County) leads the state in the production of electricity through a variety of energy sources, ranging from natural gas fired power plants and cogeneration facilities to wind, solar, hydro, geothermal and biomass facilities. In fact, the amount of electricity produced is more than is needed locally and the surplus is transmitted for use in homes and businesses throughout California.
Kern County plays a critical role in meeting the nationís energy needs. It produces 77% of Californiaís crude oil and 65% of the stateís natural gas production. This represents approximately 10% of the nationís total oil production. Kern County refinery operations range from large full-scale operations to smaller, specialty facilities, producing many refined products, including gasoline, diesel fuel, propane, motor oil, asphalt and ammonia. Kern County also generates energy through cogeneration, wind and solar.
At the southern end of the San Joaquin Valley, the most diverse and productive farming area in the world, Kern County produces over 250 different crops, including over 30 types of fruits and nuts, over 40 types of vegetables, over 20 field crops, not to mention lumber, nursery stock, livestock, poultry and dairy products. (One out of every ten jobs throughout the state is directly linked to agriculture.) Bakersfield Info Source
