City of Coachella Water Reclamation Plant, owned by Solar Power Partners, Coachella, Calif.

The city of Coachella was looking for ways to reduce its high electricity bill for the Water Reclamation Plant. The city decided to convert 3 acres of land adjacent to the water treatment facility into a 420 kW concentrated solar photovoltaic project. The $2.7 million project uses 55 SolFocus SF-1100S ground-mounted CPV systems incorporating 1,540 panels. Solar Power Partners financed, owns, and operates the plant, and sells the output to the water reclamation plant under a long-term power purchase agreement. The average monthly bill for the water reclamation facility has been reduced by more than 65 percent.
