Document Description
The ACWD (District) proposes to install floating solar photovoltaic (PV) power generation atop former Pit T1 and Pit T2 groundwater recharge facilities. The Pit T1 facility would generate approximately 880 kW AC solar PV power and cover approximately 130,000 square feet (3.0 acres) of the existing Pit T1 pond. The Pit T2 facility would generate approximately 2,270 kW AC solar PV power and cover approximately 240,000 square feet (5.5 acres) of the existing pond. Power generated at each site would be used at the same site, to the extent feasible, with excess power sent to the electrical grid to be used at other District facilities.
