On Episode 11 of the TID Water & Power Podcast we sit down with TID’s Josh Weimer to discuss the Project Nexus, the District's solar panels over canals project.
In February, TID announced Project Nexus, a pilot project to install 5 megawatts of solar panel canopies over our existing irrigation canals – the first project of its kind in the nation. The $20 million project, which is funded by the California Department of Water Resources, will not only benefit TID, but if successful, could become a template with potential to be replicated elsewhere in the state to help California achieve its water and energy goals.
On this episode we discuss discuss the benefits of Project Nexus, how TID became the agency to pilot the project, and how the District plans on implementing this unique project.
