Design-Build Team Engineers and Installs Pressure-Reducing Turbine Electric Generation System
Bennett Engineering Services provided design-build engineering and retrofit services to install a 140 kW, variable flow pressure reducing turbine and to develop an electric self-generation facility (hydropower) to offset electric consumption to operate pumps and receive incentives from Southern California Edison when it generates excess electricity.
The site consumed 1,382,474 kWh in the 2012-2013 fiscal year. The project was developed to benefit the County both financially and environmentally. The team demonstrated experience engineering and installing pressure-reducing turbine electric generation system.
