Solar Power Site Feasibility Study

The Jurupa Community Services District (District), located in Jurupa Valley, California contracted Cannon to prepare a feasibility study for installing solar power at two reservoir sites and their headquarters. As part of the feasibility study, Cannon prepared conceptual layouts, researched available Southern California Edison (SCE) programs, identified environmental constraints, and conducted a business case evaluation (BCE).

For the BCE, Cannon prepared life cycle cost analysis for multiple alternatives. The alternatives included the District installing solar panels, contracting with a power provider via power purchase agreement (a vendor installs and operates the solar panels, and the District purchases the power), or leasing the property to a power provider (a vendor produces power at the site and sells it to SCE, then pays the District to lease the site). The project also included feasibility of installing solar panels on top of the main facility and maintenance buildings as well as the car ports.
