Solar power systems to be installed by San Diego County Water Authority

Posted: Updated:

SAN DIEGO (CNS) - Solar power systems that can generate enough electricity to power 30,000 homes will be installed by the San Diego County Water Authority under an agreement with Borrego Solar Systems.

The solar power systems will be installed in the parking lot and on the roof of the Water Authority's Kearny Mesa headquarters, at its Fred A. Heilbron Operations Center in Escondido and atop several large structures at the Twin Oaks Valley Water Treatment plant north of San Marcos.

San Diego-based Borrego Solar estimates that the systems will generate 2.8 million kilowatt hours of electricity annually, enough to power about 30,000 homes.

The systems are being installed at no cost to the Water Authority under a 20-year power purchase agreement with Borrego Solar.

Installation is expected to be completed by next summer.
