Here is an interesting article hydro battery - about the hydro pumping battery, the nations biggest and growing energy storage method. This could be used to power an east (wet) to west (dry) aqueduct. A percentage of the solar and wind energy stored would be used to power the lift and overcome the friction of the water flow up and down mountains along the route from the southeast (75+ inches per year) to AZ and SoCal (15+ inches per year). That stored energy not consumed by the aqueduct flow would enter the grid along the path of the aqueduct.
