Today's Featured Contract:
$2,090 to Integral Engineering
for a solar panel feasibility analysis
approved March 2013.
The Tattler has said publicly that we think the ECCL should have solar panels on its roofs. However, no one has to pay for estimates, which is what this feasibility study amounts to. If the District wants to pursue solar panels, and it should, then all it needs to do is issue an Request For Proposal (RFP) and they will suddenly receive multiple emails from expert installers explaining how many solar panels could be placed on the roofs of up to five buildings on the ECCL site, how much energy would be produced, an estimated cost, and recommendations on how large a system to get and how to mount it.
Just as an aside, $2,090 would more than cover the cost of after-school care as part of the City's Recreation program for one needy child for an entire school year.
As another aside, Measure J taxpayer funds may only be spent on needy consultants, not children.
