Summary "In addition to providing 800 (or maybe more) parking spaces, the new structure [at Glendale Community College] includes a large-scale photovoltaic (solar panel) system on the roof. The solar array will cover (and shade) most of the top level parking areas of the structure. At peak operation on sunny days, the system will generate up to 400 kilowatts of power, enough electricity for several hundred average homes. Glendale Water & Power is bearing the entire cost of acquiring, installing and maintaining the system, as well as paying the college about $760,000 to cover modifications to the building to provide structural and operational support for the panels. GWP will own the solar power system and is leasing the space on top of the parking structure from the college for a nominal one dollar per year for 50 years. The college has already received national publicity for being involved in this significant 'green power' project"--GCC website, at
