SolarWorld announced today that it has supplied four systems of about 1MW each for the Eastern Municipal Water District (EMWD) in California's Riverside County.

"By investing in solar energy at many of our larger facilities, we are minimizing our carbon footprint and ensuring we stabilize costs for our ratepayers both now and well into the future."

The latest four 1MW systems, the last of which is to be commissioned in coming days, are located at EMWD's desalter facility in Menifee (community of Sun City) and regional waste water-treatment facilities in San Jacinto, Moreno Valley, and Perris Valley. Composed of 72-cell SolarWorld solar panels mounted on NEXTracker single-axis trackers, the systems will enable the facilities to offset peak power demand.

"EMWD's Board of Directors has adopted the strategic objective to provide service in a cost-effective and environmentally responsible manner," EMWD General Manager Paul Jones said. "By investing in solar energy at many of our larger facilities, we are minimizing our carbon footprint and ensuring we stabilize costs for our ratepayers both now and well into the future."

Stronghold Engineering Inc. was EMWD's selected design-build contractor on the four projects. Parsons Corp. supported the agency's field engineering division on the suite of 1MW solar renewable energy projects.
