Solar Cup - For Educators & Administrators

Anaheim Public Utilities offers educators the opportunity to expand curriculum beyond the classroom. We offer facility tours, extracurricular programs, and projects to enhance the educational experience for Anaheim students.
Solar Cup
Every year, the Metropolitan Water District of Southern California sponsors the nation’s largest solar-powered boat competition during the month of May at Lake Skinner, in Temecula Valley. Anaheim Public Utilities sponsors high school teams from Anaheim to compete in the boat race, which consists of about 40 schools and 800 students. The Solar Cup is a seven-month program in which students design and build boats that are powered by solar energy stored in batteries. The Solar Cup provides hands-on learning about water conservation, renewable energy sources, mechanical engineering and teamwork. For more information, call (714) 765-4250
