“SunPower is very experienced in working with water agencies, and assisted us with obtaining the QECBs and making the project affordable,” said Keith Lewinger, general manager of FPUD. “The system will offset approximately 45 percent of our total electricity for all District facilities. In addition, the combination of state rebates and federal low-interest financing allows the District to purchase the facility, and at the same time realize a net cash savings each year compared to purchasing 100 percent of our power from the grid, resulting in savings we can pass on to our customers.”
