SolarWorld Deploys 1.1 MW Solar Array At California Water Treatment Plant - Solar Industry

The cities of Fairfield and Vacaville, Calif., have completed a 1.1 MW solar power system designed, procured and constructed by SolarWorld, and owned and operated by Salt Lake City-based power producer Sustainable Power Group. The array powers the North Bay Regional Water Treatment Plant, a facility the cities co-own on the Sacramento River delta. The system features over 4,000 SolarWorld photovoltaic panels mounted on single-axis trackers, and is expected to generate about 2 million kWh of electricity per year. SolarWorld has a 20-year power purchase agreement with Fairfield. "Fairfield's goal is to utilize solar power to secure a clean alternative energy supply that will reduce the city's overall energy costs and help keep operating costs down," says Felix Riesenberg, Fairfield’s assistant director of public works.
