Document Description
The Project would install a 3.5 MW Photovoltaic (PV) solar project on 19.5 acres of CLWA-owned land located within the current boundaries of the RVWTP. The Project would generate enough electricity annually to partially meet the electrical demands for 44 of 82 off-site meters owned by CWLA and its retail division, the Santa Clarita Water Division (3.5 MW). Because the peak generation of the solar plant is during summer daylight hours and is not identical to the demand curve of the off-site meters, the plant will operate under "net metering" characteristics and be part of the Renewable Energy Self-Generation Bill Credit Transfer program (RES-BCT). Net metering permits excess energy generated to be supplied to SCE's distribution network and used to offset energy costs at the off-site meters even if demand occurs outside of the period of solar power generation. This demand and supply balancing must occur within the same calendar year and excess generation cannot be carried over into the following year.
