the San Jose Water Company's Columbine Reservoir. This solar array generates the equivalent energy to power approximately 75 homes during the day.

"The San Jose Water Company is an exemplary utility that's helping bring clean solar power generation to the forefront of our region's energy mix," said Tom McCalmont, CEO of Campbell-based REgrid Power, a leading California solar integrator, and chairman of SolarTech, a collaborative Silicon Valley solar industry initiative. "As solar power reaches grid parity, this technology will become increasingly ubiquitous, due in large part to savvy power customers such as the San Jose Water Company, who recognize the value of clean, emissions-free power. We're proud that REgrid Power can play a part in the City of San Jose's vision for a cleaner, better future for all of us. It's vital that utilities and water districts continue to expand the use of solar."
