Unlocking New Opportunities for
Municipalities and Water District in
Not long ago, most Districts and Municipalities were under the
impression that solar was an expensive technology that
couldn’t reduce operating costs or generate additional revenue
for their properties. But a lot has changed.
Today, Districts and Municipalities have the ability to show that renewable energy is more than make a
statement about social responsibility. It can create significant benefits to your bottom line.
The RES-BCT program (formerly AB 2466) was established by the legislature eﬀecCve January 1, 2009, and is
codiﬁed in SecCon 2830 of the Public UCliCes Code. It allows a Local Government with one or more eligible
renewable generaCng faciliCes to export energy to the grid and receive generaCon credits to beneﬁUng
accounts of the same Local Government (AB 1031 expanded applicability to universiCes).
Just as organizations are exploring solar for different reasons, every District and Municipality will have a
different program that it can participate in to maximize additional revenue or cutting expenses because
we know that one size does not fit all. We work closely with every customer to understand their
business challenges and build a plan that is aligned with their strategies.
At the heart of our approach is a consultative relationship with our customers that allows us to
collaboratively develop energy solutions that will cover an entire portfolio of sites and maximize the
available footprint. We offer innovative Public Private Partnerships with District and Municipalities with
0% dollars spent on budgets with site leases where we act as an additional tenant on your property as
well as Power Purchase Agreements (PPAs) for Municipal Districts who wish to purchase the power
produced by the solar while minimizing their up-front investment.
