"From curbside you won't notice the carports at the foundation's charitable center are topped off with solar panels."

What the article doesn't tell you is about the first solar installation that was on the parking structure a couple of years ago. It was a concentrated tracking solar PV array structure. the arrays never did quite track the sun like they were supposed to. Sometimes half of the arrays were pointing East and half were point West. The public didn't like the arrays sticking up off of the top of the parking structures, so they came down. Now there are fixed arrays on the parking structures and it seems the foundation can almost generate their total energy needs. The arrays will come in handy during the summer months for a peak source of power generation is needed on the 100 + degree days.
