Will Marinwood Pool have a Solar carport like this?

Marinwood CSD is considering installing a customized version of a carport in the pool area. We support the use of renewable energy sources where ever practical and cost effective.  we think this industrial project is not right for our resort like pool area that boasts a beautiful natural setting, wildlife and abundant places to enjoy the outdoors.  This structure can be found in the Redwood High School parking lot in Larkspur.  This huge structure is 40 feet wide (about the wide of the pool) just like the ones proposed .  Unfortunately, due to its location,  a fully custom engineered structure will be needed which will greatly add to the expense.  The energy/ cost savings do not justify it.  By keeping the project on the main community center roof we will have a far more cost effective project. A must less costly solar hot water heater as proposed by Marin County Sustainable Team leader, Dana Armanino.

Tell the Marinwood CSD to say "No" to the solar carport project.
