WorldWater & Solar Technologies Corp., developer and marketer of proprietary high-horsepower solar systems, has completed the installation of a 1.1 MW solar power system for the Valley Center Municipal Water District (VCMWD) of Valley Center, Calif. The system, which was financed and will be owned, operated and maintained by Solar Power Partners Inc. of Mill Valley, Calif., will provide 2.1 million kWh per year of electricity for the district, offsetting up to 20% of the electricity required by its largest pumping station.
The project was developed using a solar power purchase agreement, which required no cash outlay from VCMWD, which will purchase the generated power from SPP for the 25-year life of the agreement.
Additional partners on this project included Sharp Solar, which supplied the panels for the project, and Xantrex Technology Inc., a subsidiary of Schneider Electric, which provided the inverters.
