Water + solar = savings for cash-strapped California utilities | Energy

SunPower also recently installed a 1-megawatt system at the Castaic Lake Water Agency’s Rio Vista Water Treatment Plant in Santa Clarita, as well as a 983-kilowatt system at the city of Galt’s Wastewater Treatment Plant. Unlike the Riverside County installations, which were paid for by the Rancho California Water District, the Castaic Lake Water Agency system and the Galt system were financed through solar power purchase agreements with SunPower. Under those agreements, SunPower will own, operate and maintain the facilities, and sell the solar energy generated to the water agencies at below-retail rates.
