The Power of Solar for Water Utilities

Organizations with significant land holdings and large reliable power consumption can benefit greatly from solar energy, either with self-generation or power purchase agreements (PPAs). These benefits often extend to major pipelines, distribution systems, wastewater collection systems, and water and wastewater treatment facilities.

The energy expenses of a water or wastewater utility can be astronomical – far more than the cost of water treatment or other essential functions. California Water and Wastewater Special Districts alone spend more than $11 billion per year on electricity.

Whether a utility chooses to pursue a PPA relationship or install its own solar facility, comprehensive knowledge and documented experience in designing and building solar generation systems is essential to success. Selecting a partner with long-term stability to support operations and maintenance will ensure that your water utility will operate for decades to come.
