Work is underway to convert a 22-acre site along the
Anthony Wayne Trail into a solar field.
The former elevator plant site will become home to a two
mega-watt solar array to provide the Toledo Zoo with a new source of renewable
energy. Toledo City Council approved a special use permit to allow work to
begin. Crews and heavy equipment are now there to lay the groundwork for the
solar array to be built.
At one time, that site was targeted for a proposed auto
junk yard. Neighbors, including Sharon McLennan, are happy a solar field is
going there instead of a junk yard, and McLennan says she's glad the property
will be put to productive use.
"For a long time no one took care of it, weeds would get
so high," she said. "Seeing something going there is better; something to help
with energy is good, too."
Once built, the Toledo Zoo will tap into the solar field
to help run its heating, lighting and life support systems. It's estimated it
will provide roughly 30 percent of the zoo's energy needs.
