Town Square

Touring yesterday's technology

Original post made by [removed] on Jul 18, 2011

Dear Editor,

REF: Web Link

Technologists visiting our region were provided a tour of SRVUSD solar power generation stations being built at high school and middle school sites. Our visitors, from North America and Asia, are involved in technology funding and commercialization and were gathering as guests of strategic capital groups in the greater bay area. Technologists' responded to the tour with concern for technologies employed and the long-term value of the installations.

At issue, technologists were promised presentations of advanced technologies being employed in our bay area and the SRVUSD tour provided a view of technologies from the past century. The findings (documentation) from the meetings noted "We must wonder if there are two bay areas, the bay area that is home to advanced technology development and bay area regions that fail to employ such technologies."

As you continue to report SRVUSD's installations of solar power generation stations in neighborhoods throughout our corridor, it would be appropriate to report the options that would have made solar power a good neighbor.

Dear Editor,

This morning's subscriber news service feature provided pictures of the massive solar power generation station superstructure and power management facilities with additional renderings and actual examples of the finished generation station with solar panels in place. A group of technologists joined me this morning in visiting the massive industrial structure now in place at Monte Vista High School. There is no answer to WHY this was the option for solar power installation at MVHS due to the lack of need for such a facility to implement solar generation for the campus.

It is time public media, including the Express, provided pictures to readers of this massive station and its power management facilities along Stone Valley Road. The station dominates the small valley, the views of neighbors and park users, and Stone Valley Road travelers.

That MVHS site used to be a riding arena, with a white wooden fence, used by local youth.

They "paved paradise and put up a parking lot."

But it sure must look progressive on someone's resume.
