Yes, the Solar Garden is sold out. But if you are a Lake County resident, the County has panels in reserve that you can still purchase. Contact the Clean Energy Collective to reserve panels. Construction is underway and should be completed in the next couple months. Who has purchased most of the panels? Lake County Government, Park County Government, Parkville Water and Moosehaven HOA. Residential Lake County customers make up 5% of the array. We would like to raise this number and the County has reserved the panels to do it, so get signed up today!
The remaining latex paint from the Household Hazardous Waste event has been recycled. The County hired GreenSheen paint, which recycles 99% of the paint it accepts and re-sells it to Habitat for Humanity. This means all 50,000 pounds of toxic substances disposed of by Lake County residents has been taken care of, wahoo!
