Community colleges receive PG&E rebate

PG&E gave a rebate check for $7.9 million to the Contra Costa Community College District for its solar panel installation. It was presented by Pacific Gas and Electric Co. last week at Diablo Valley College in Pleasant Hill, and Lt. Gov. John Garamendi spoke at the event.

The district installed solar panels at its three colleges; in total the system has the capacity to generate 3.2 megawatts of direct current solar power.
