Silicon Valley Clean Water
SVCW manages energy by reducing our energy demand and increasing our energy supply. By implementing innovative technologies such as a new hyperbolic mixer/aerator to treat water and a rotary fan press to process solid waste, SVCW has reduced our energy demand by hundreds of horsepower. As an example, by replacing our water aeration system with a high efficiency hyperbolic aerator we will save approximately 2.93 million kilowatt-hours of energy every year, enough to power 240 homes every year. In 2018, SVCW received $273,623.94 from PG&E as an incentive to implement this new technology.
Other energy projects such as battery storage and solar will also help SVCW manage its energy demand and provide renewable supplies for our region
