Victorville’s Municipal Utility Services (VMUS) provides electricity to existing, expanding and new industrial customers at SCLA and the SCLC. VMUS electrical services are provided through an inter-connect  to a local substation located and distributed directly to VMUS customers through its distribution network. VMUS sets rates annually and traditionally provides its electricity at costs that are less than competing investor owned utilities, including nearby municipal utilities.

As of July 1st, 2014, the system average rate for VMUS neighboring utilities is 5.2 percent less than Southern California Edison (SCE) comparable schedules. And, the proposed system average rate for VMUS retail customers remains 9.5 percent less than comparable tariff schedules for the City of Moreno Valley.

Natural Gas

Victorville’s Municipal Utility Services (VMUS) provides natural gas to existing, expanding and new industrial customers at SCLA and the Southern California Logistics Centre (SCLC). VMUS is capable of providing natural gas at volumes and pressures necessary for industry to operate. As an example, VMUS recently partnered with SCLA to upgrade volume and pressure to fuel a heated ventilation system for two wide-body hangars leased by Leading Edge. The system upgrade enabled Leading Edge to become an Original Equipment Manufacturer (OEM) for The Boeing Companies.

Hybrid Power

To be located upon a 300-acre site at SCLA, the Victorville 2 Hybrid Power Project (Victorville 2) is a 563 megawatt hybrid natural gas-fired combined cycle and solar thermal power plant. Victorville 2 was originally approved for construction by the California Energy Commission (CEC) in July of 2008. Due in large part to a global recession that impacted the overall demand for electrical power in California, the City of Victorville recently requested and the CEC approved an extension of that permit for an additional 5-year term.

As a permitted construction project in a sun soaked California desert, Victorville 2 is ideally positioned to serve as an immediate response to any call for power to help Southern California meet its demands for electrical power. Victorville 2 provides additional value as it is positioned to help utility companies meet their respective California renewable energy requirement.

Victorville 2 is a shelf-ready project and can be available to interested investors or buyers of wholesale power.

wastewater treatment that’s both 99.9% reliable and cost-effective.

The SCLA Industrial Wastewater Treatment Facility (IWWTF) is ideal for food and beverage manufacturing operations looking to expand or being regulated away from other Southern California wastewater systems. The SCLA IWWTF was designed and built to treat 2.5 million gallons per day (MGD).  The SCLA IWWTF is served by a collection system that contains pipelines dedicated for both industrial and domestic waste. The SCLA IWWTF is rated to treat up to 1 MGD of industrial waste and 1.5 MGD of domestic waste. The SCLA IWWTF also serves as a source of reclaimed water to industrial customers operating at SCLA.

Domestic and reclaimed water

Domestic Water

Through its water district, Victorville provides domestic water services to residential, commercial and industrial customers.

The Victorville Water District is the provider of domestic water services for industrial purposes at its industrial parks and provides domestic water in volumes and at pressures required by industrial users. Industrial operators commonly develop by satisfying their fire water demand through two points of connection to the City’s distribution system, avoiding needs for on-site storage tanks.

Recently, the Victorville Water District assisted Dr Pepper Snapple, meets its daily consumption demand of approximately 1 million gallons per day required to help it produce its beverage products. Today, Dr Pepper produces product for 20% (an estimated 40 million cases) of its U.S. consuming population from Victorville.

Reclaimed Water

For industrial customers operating at SCLA or the SCLC, Victorville provides reclaimed water service at volumes, pressures and quality required by industrial users. Victorville’s reclaimed water services are generated from two wastewater treatment sources, pumped through a local purple pipe distribution system and stored at SCLC in an above ground storage tower. 

Big cost savings.

Victorville Municipal Utility Services (VMUS) offers electrical, and natural gas services for commercial and industrial customers at the Foxborough Industrial Park and Southern California Logistics Airport (SCLA).

As of July 2014, VMUS electric rates were approximately 13.1% less than Southern California Edison (SCE) comparable schedules. VMUS electric rates are traditionally less than municipal utility rates of other competing Southern California communities.
