"We know how important renewable energy is to our country’s future, and we’re glad to partner with a progressive local utility to make that happen in Pennsylvania," said Alan Litt, President of Pace Energy.
The authority will use the energy generated to power about 25 percent of its daily advanced wastewater treatment operations, which provides wastewater treatment and reuse water to the majority of the State College region.
The solar project enables the authority to completely offset its water reuse operations (a portion of the whole facility) with renewable energy.
RETTEW will provide engineering designs for the project, including an energy storage battery system to regulate the regional power frequency.
This project provides synergies between water reuse and renewable energy, positioning the authority to further advance their mission."
"We continue to strategize and work towards advanced renewable energy and sustainable water management, providing an example of how many in our industry could ramp up operations," said Cory Miller, the authority’s executive director.
