Treasure Island = Solar Power Goldmine
I just got done reading this article: http://www.sfexaminer.com/local/Treasure-Island-may-be-hot-spot-98296134.html
How ironic that "The centerpiece of the 1939 World’s Fair was a 400-foot octagonal structure named the Tower of the Sun." Now things are really coming full circle! We need to expand this project... why?
"If city leaders, state officials and developers opt to build 20 acres of solar power plants, those facilities could provide more than half the island’s peak power needs."
Imagine 40 acres of solar power plants (of the 404 acre island, so only appx. 10% of the land)! That would make Treasure Island effectively energy independent. The immediate results are great, but more importantly, we can serve as an example of the future of energy solutions to the rest of the nation and world!
