UGLY comes to Alamo

AS workers install the superstructure for the solar power generation station at MVHS, neighbors now see what they are going to look down on from their back yards. It is now a reality that a massive industrial structure with a superstructure of large old-technology solar panels that use exposed machanical systems to track the sun will disrupt the beauty of this small valley.
Such industrial construction only relates to such old technology and any future upgrade will render the superstructure useless. Even Sunpower, the provider of the panels, is sold and will disappear into the operations of its French parent company as a trade name for new solar technologies.
Thus, neighbors realize they have been provided the burden of this very industrial solar generation power station as an impact on their home values and disruption of their once beautiful vistas.
It is a sad story ready to be told.
