May 01, 2005 by Jeff Shepard

WorldWater and Power Corp. (Pennington, NJ), a maker of solar energy systems, announced signing of a contract for $1.8 million to supply solar-generated electricity for a tree farm in California. The company's proprietary solar AquaMax™ will drive a 200 hp water pump in addition to the system saving an estimated 70% of the Cocopah tree farm's electrical bills. Work on the project will begin immediately.

WorldWater recently completed another AquaMax system driving a 200 hp pump for the Seley Ranches citrus farm in California. The company also supplied all the solar equipment for a 1 MW solar installation at Cerro Coso College in Ridgecrest, CA, which the college estimates will supply 60% of its electricity and save the college over $300,000 a year. WorldWater also recently signed a contract with the Idyllwild Water District to operate seven of the utility's pumps by use of the AquaMax system.
