Wow, 44 permits, 20 of them for the installation of roof top solar. Hello, SCE are you listening?
That quote from Genesis for the waste water treatment upgrade doesn't really break out what is being installed, or retrofitted. Since you seem to be going out to bid again, you might want to consider something like turbolex using what they call a waveox control system. If the plant is not too far along in its build cycle. You might be better off going to anaerobic digestion system and using the generated gas to run generators to offset the power required to run the plant. Of course with the installation of solar PV you could also offset the plant's operating costs. Palm Springs added a solar PV system to their waste water treatment plant a few years back. For that million dollars, you could get something on the order of 3 to 4 MW of power each day to use to run the plant.
