Walking the Walk...

As the old saying goes, "Don't talk the talk, unless you can walk the walk." Well PG&E appears to have found a worthy adversary in its fight with the SSJID.

In the heat of battle, SSJID officials went on record saying that if they couldn't buy out PG&E, they would build their own system from the ground up. Now the District is backing up that tough talk.

It opted to power its water treatment facility near Woodward Reservoir itself, cutting out PG&E in the process. The solar array went online in April and so far is working as advertised.

With the new solar power array, SSJID's energy portfolio remains 100% green, with all power being generated by hyrdoelectric or solar.
