Columbus Adds Solar Panels to Fleet Maintenance Facility

August 02, 2010

COLUMBUS, OH - Columbus City Council recently passed legislation that calls for Westerville, Ohio-based SolarVision to install and operate solar panels on the roof of the city's fleet maintenance center, according to Columbus Business First.

SolarVision will bear the $2.5 million cost of the project in return for the city's commitment to buy the electricity generated by the solar panels for the next 10 years.

The project should help the city save money on electricity while demonstrating its support for green energy, said Councilman Andrew Ginther.

"We are excited to continue implementing green initiatives that meet or exceed the Mayor's Green Action Plan, while cleaning up our environment in Central Ohio," Fleet Administrator Kelly Reagan told Government Fleet.
