About the MWD Plants

SCPPA holds a power purchase agreement for the output from four small hydroelectric plants on the Metropolitan Water District (MWD) system in Southern California, having a total nameplate capacity of 17.04 MW. The four plants are: Perris (7.94 MW), Rio Hondo (1.9 MW), Coyote Creek (3.13 MW) and Valley View (4.10 MW). Output for these plants is dependent on the water operations of MWD. Transmission is accomplished through the California Independent System Operator, with the City of Anaheim acting as the scheduler.
