Solar Power for Avocado Ranch

[RenewableEnergyAcess.com] WorldWater & Power Corporation signed of a contract for $7.8 million with Farm ACW of Fallbrook, California, to install solar electric systems to power the avocado ranch operations. The new contract brings the total of projects signed in 2005 to $12.2 million, compared to total revenues in 2004 of $5.8 million. The contract with the avocado farm means WorldWater now has four projects in or preparing for operation in California and New Jersey, including two water utilities — Atlantic County Utilities Authority in New Jersey and Idyllwild Water District in California — and two California agricultural projects — Cocopah Tree Farm and Farm ACW. The contract is subject to certain conditions, including securing grid interconnections with San Diego Gas & Electric. The Company has already begun this process and expects approval of the interconnection by Summer 2005.
