A rescheduling of priorities is allowing directors of the Clovis Veterans Memorial District to get a solar electricity system that will shave more than $3 million off their power bills over the next 25 years.
Installation of the $1.3 million system on the Old Town building is being made possible by shifting work projects. It is believed to be the largest solar project in Clovis, according to stories in The Fresno Bee and The Business Journal..
That is yet another example of the region's increasing interest in solar and clean energy. In 2009, the Fresno-Clovis metropolitan area ranked second among California cities behind San Diego in the number of solar installations, The Bee reported.
