Implementing Renewable Energy at Water Utilities: Case Studies

Jun 9, 2019
Case Study

Many utilities have found means for including renewable energy options at their facility, either through direct purchasing and operating of equipment, leasing space on-site to third-party renewable energy companies, through purchase power agreements, or purchasing offsets from third parties off-site to account for power use in high-energy applications such as desalination. To provide context for WaterRF subscribers on this issue, the efforts of a few municipalities with successful renewable energy projects are highlighted as case studies. These case studies have been selected for the type of renewable energy technology, project scale, and location.
