Online White Paper Looks At Solar-Powered Aeration

A white paper published on the Treatment Plant Operator website presents a case study on the use of solar-powered aeration in activated sludge wastewater treatment facilities. Sponsored by SolarBee, a manufacturer of solar-powered mixing and aeration systems, the paper describes the experience of the Mebane Bridge Wastewater Treatment Plant in Eden, Minn., with solar-powered circulation technology for mixing and oxygenation previously supplied solely by electric-utility-powered aerators.

During study periods in which the plant used solar-powered circulation, no NPDES permit violations occurred. Water quality parameters were generally unchanged or improved. Both mean monthly electrical-grid power use and cost decreased significantly. Annual electricity usage declined by 1,692,000 kWh (42 percent). The cost savings on electricity resulted in a 10.7 month payback period.

The white paper can be accessed at www.tpomag.com/whitepapers.
