I've got a site idea

By B.E. "Billie" Jones - San Luis Obispo

Looking at all the facts will show that the existing location behind Cuesta College is the best location for Morro Bay’s new sewer treatment plant. Please consider this, Mr. John Rickenbach. There is enough acreage surrounding the Men’s Colony treatment plant to install a solar field that will accomplish a positive result for all concerned. It could furnish enough energy to service the needs of all the following:

1) The entire city of Morro Bay

2) Cuesta College

3) Camp San Luis

4) the county school building

5) Dairy Creek Golf Course

6) El Chorro Regional Park

7) California Men’s Colony

8) both men’s and women’s county jails

PG&E could use this new source of power to offset their loss of the Morro Bay generation plant. Cuesta College could use the solar field as a working laboratory for their new renewable energy education center. Please consider battery energy storage packs, and all of the above-named benefactors’ electric bills will be net zero.
