Wish to preview MVHS and SRVHS Solar Carport?
Original post made by [removed] on May 12, 2011
Let's suggest MVHS and SRVHS neighbors visit 1750 Oak Park Blvd in Pleasant Hill CA to see a Solar Generation Station, aka Solar Carport, installed. It is a massive structure, quite industrial in design, and fully consumes the skyline of that property.

As one neighbor said after visiting the site, "It looks like the overhead train structures in Chicago."

Simple solution! The Danville Town Planning Commission demand an Environmental Impact Report. This is an eyesore!

I think that gasoline stations are an eyesore. They're also a source of air pollution and cancer-causing materials. Let's get rid of them.

Any structure placed in a neighborhood setting should reflect the character and nature of such neighborhoods. Solar carports are major power generation stations that present a massive array of solar panels high above parking lots that typically would not be found in our neighborhoods. Monte Vista's Alamo neighbors have the opportunity to see a fully constructed Solar Generation Station as a Solar Carport in full view at 1750 Oak Park Blvd in Pleasant Hill.
Certainly there are lighter-weight advanced solar technologies today that would place the same solar generation capacity on roofs of MVHS in Danville. Clinging to heavy glass panels that are end-of-life technologies causes the requirement of very industrial support structures seen at the Oak Park Blvd example of carports.
