After 5 years of extreme drought in California, the City of Santa Barbara decided to reactivate their Desalinization Plant in 2014. The plant originally constructed in the late 1980’s, was taken off line in the early 1990’s after abundant rainfall made its’ operation unnecessary. Much work was required to upgrade the plant to the latest technology. Brannon Inc. dba Smith Electric Service was contracted by Kiewit to perform the electrical work associated with these upgrades. The new technology will reduce energy consumption by 40% utilizing high efficiency pumps, motors and improved filter technology. When fully operational in early 2017, the plant will produce approximately 30% of the city’s water.
