CSUB gets solar panels and a pedestrian friendly round-about ...
Spotted this on the Cal State University at Bakersfield website: "A 1-megawatt solar panel system will provide 25 to 30 percent of CSUB's energy use as well as shade cover to 500 parking spaces by Fall 2010 in a public-private partnership between CSU and SunEdison. The power company is funding the $9.5 million project." The first photo, also courtesy of CSUB, is of a round-about being installed in front of the Icardo Center.
