Rec Center Installing Solar Panels

EUGENE, Ore. — The River Road Rec Center is ready to soak up the sun after receiving a grant to install solar panels.

The $100,000 received is part of EWEB’s Green Power Grant. The park superintendent says the panels can help cover up to 20 percent of their energy costs. He says the grant was awarded to them in April and it’s great to finally see the work in progress.

“Absolutely. It’s been a long process to get to here but the last two or three weeks the frameworks gone up. We’re all kind of up getting excited now that all the panels are on the roof,” said Dale Weigandt, Park Superintendent.

Dale Weigandt says the community and park staff feedback has been positive. It’s going to take another three to four days to fully install all the panels.
