On Tuesday, Nov. 7, the Board of Commissioners joined with Tesla, Inc., and the Department of Public Works, to celebrate the groundbreaking of the new solar canopy project. The project will include installing solar canopies for County Government Building, Circuit Court, and District Court parking lots. The solar canopies will provide environmental benefits, electricity cost reduction, and shade for vehicles in the parking lots.
