In Fall of 2020, the Heritage Ranch Community Services District (HRCSD), began construction on a new solar energy generation system designed to offset energy costs associated with their water and wastewater treatment plant operations.
These facilities require a large amount of electricity to operate. Last year, HRCSD’s electricity costs accounted for $220,000 of their overall expenses. The new solar system, expected to be completed by the middle of 2021, should offset approximately 77 percent of HRCSD’s annual energy costs.
HRCSD turned to the CSDA Finance Corporation for the funding of the $1.5 million project.
A solar energy generation project has been on the district’s radar for over 10 years and the current Board of Directors is glad to see it finally come to fruition. The energy cost savings, rate of return, and the investment in clean energy make this project a great benefit to our community and environment. Thank you to the CSDA Finance Corporation and the entire project team.
