SunPower has commissioned a 916 kW solar array at the Western Municipal Water District's operations facility in Riverside, Calif.
SunPower designed, built, and will operate and maintain the installation, which includes the SunPower T0 Tracker system. Western financed the project through a power purchase agreement with SunPower. Under terms of the agreement, Wells Fargo owns the system, and Western will buy the electricity but not retain the renewable energy credits associated with the project.
This solar project marks the second sSunPower developed with Western; In 2009, SunPower delivered a 1 MW system at the Western Riverside County Wastewater Treatment Plant, a Western-administrated and -operated joint powers authority facility.
