Baker Solar Project Supports IRWD’s Sustainability...

  Water and energy are fundamentally linked: Energy is needed to pump, treat and distribute water, and water is used to generate many forms of energy. In an age when both resources are increasingly scarce, Irvine Ranch Water District is finding ways to supplement the energy needed for its operations. As a part of that vision, the District has installed 2,360 solar power modules on top of two underground water storage reservoirs at the Baker Water Treatment Plant in Lake Forest. These panels will generate about 1 MW of power – enough to serve about 50% of the plant’s energy needs. The Baker solar project is an important part of IRWD’s Energy and Greenhouse Master Plan and it supports the District's goals to reduce energy use and incorporate sustainability in our approach to operations. IRWD has several projects completed or nearing completion to help meet this need through renewable energy and energy storage. Baker Solar Project: 2,360 solar...
