Doug Hardcastle, President of the Iron house Sanitary District, alerted the public to a meeting during last nights Oakley City Council Meeting to be held this Thursday at 7:00 pm at the Oakley City Council Chambers where they will be discussing adding a 1-megawatt solar panel.
They claim this $5 million investment (which would likely hit rate-payers) would reduce rate-payer rates in the future due to PG&E continual rising costs. General Manager Tom Williams, solar vendors, and others will be on hand to discuss the pro/cons of this investment.
Here is a copy of their flyer on their website:
Other than questioning the poor outreach of this meeting, the only question I have is how much are they asking from rate-payers and how much can they honestly expect to save us in the future? This is very little notice with very little details being put out prior to the meeting.
