Solar Energy

TMF PhotoOn Monday, August 29, 2011, United States Senator Barbara Boxer joined Mayor Marsha McLean and the rest of the Santa Clarita City Council for a tour of the City’s Transit Maintenance Facility and a ribbon cutting ceremony for the newly completed solar canopy project.

With the expansion of three new solar canopies and additional solar panels, the Solar Canopy Project will generate 97 percent of all electricity needed to power the facility by producing almost 1 million kilowatt hours per year.
