Clearway Energy’s San Francisco Energy Center needed a way to reduce its $2M per year water bill. Forming a 3-way Private, City and State Agency partnership, a project was built to recover local groundwater from the local subway station, and install an innovative Water Treatment System that would ultimately save 80M gallons of City Water per year. The presentation will cover the actual results, the lessons learned and further opportunities for this project.
