The San Diego County Water Authority is planning to use its San Vicente Reservoir to store solar power making clean energy in the region viable, according to an article by NPR published on Friday.

Powering 130,000 homes

The project will take ten years to be built and will see large underground pipes connect San Vicente’s lake to a new reservoir about 1,100 feet higher. California’s solar power will pump water into that upper reservoir, storing electricity.
