Here Comes The Sun

City in California hopes to cut down on electricity bills and improve the environment with the largest solar projects of its kind on the West Coast.

"[Fresno, CA] will install solar panels on several canopies at its main work yard that will provide nearly all the electricity for hundreds of city workers during the summer months... The solar panel project, to be installed by Berkeley-based PowerLight Corp., will cost $4.125 million."
