The City of Oceanside is committed to sustainability in all forms, and one of the most exciting programs involves solar power. Completed in 2013, the City’s solar energy facility produces an alternative source of energy for the San Luis Rey Water Reclamation Facility. The energy is green, renewable, and uninterruptable.
Sun-sational benefits include:
The project allows the City to have a secure energy source alternative that is below the cost spent for the same amount of energy purchased from SDG&E. The City has entered into a Power Purchase Agreement, and through the agreement will gain and own renewable energy credits. These credits allow the City to use or sell credits to businesses that need them to comply with government regulation. The future is bright in Oceanside!
