Document Description
The proposed Project consists of the construction, operation and maintenance of up to a one megawatt solar photovoltaic (PV) array facility and related equipment on approximately 5.5 acres within a former holding pond at the Galt WWTP. The purpose of the project is to utilize solar electricity to supplement power for WWTP operations including the new ultraviolet disinfection and tertiary filtration facilities that were recently installed to comply with the national Pollutant Discharge Elimination System Permit (NPDES) for the WWTP. The project is part of a Solar Power Purchase Agreement whereby the solar provider, a private company, will lease the ground from the City of Galt and construct and operate the solar facility. In return, the City guarantees to purchase a minimum amount of electricity every year at a negotiated rate that is less than current and projected SMUD rates over a twenty year period.
