City solar projects progress 

–Three Paso Robles City facilities will have solar panels installed in the next few months saving Paso Robles $9.5 million over the next 20 years, according to city staff.

Both Centennial Park and Sherwood Park will see solar-covered parking stalls while the installation at the airport will be at the north edge (in what was formerly a barley field) and will cover about 25 acres.

The Centennial Park installation is nearly complete – the panels will be powered by the second week of October. Construction at Sherwood Park begins Sept. 25 and is estimated to last approximately one month. The airport project follows Sherwood Park completion.

Onyx Renewable Partners L.P. is partnering with the city on the solar project. Onyx builds, owns and maintains the solar panels. The city buys power from Onyx at a guaranteed savings rate. Power generated from both the Centennial and Sherwood projects will offset use at those particular sites. The Airport installation is engineered to offset the power at other city facilities including buildings and treatment plants.
