Solar Photovoltaic (PV) systems are an important and valuable renewable energy generation technology for water agencies interested in controlling and reducing energy costs. ACWA is proud to announce that ACWA’s Approved Preferred Provider (APP) program now includes one of the top solar energy providers in the U.S., SolarCity.
SolarCity was selected through ACWA’s solar energy RFP process from a field of sixteen commercial solar system providers, and has been confirmed as fully qualified to offer ACWA members: Onsite solar PV systems, solar energy Power Purchase Agreements (PPAs), Utility-scale solar PV projects, comprehensive site assessment and energy use analysis, and project feasibility services. As the leading solar service provider in California, SolarCity has collaborated with ACWA to provide these products and services to our members at the best possible value.
Electricity is typically the biggest expense for most water agencies. Water treatment and delivery require significant energy resources. Dr. Lon House, ACWA’s Energy Consultant, has repeatedly advised ACWA members that changing tariffs could make electricity even more expensive in the future, and encouraged them to look at ways to control those escalating costs. On-site solar power generation can be an excellent way to fix energy costs at a lower rate.
