Concrete Parking Lot and Solar Power Combined at California High School

Print Print this Article | Send to Colleague

Monache High School in Porterville, CA, (shown below) selected a combination of cool concrete and "hot" solar collectors when it came time to replace its old asphalt parking lot. The concrete surface not only resulted in a cooler surface than the old asphalt, but also provided for a brighter, more reflective and safer parking area once the overhead solar panels were installed.

"Tom Tietz and Paulette Salisbury with the California Nevada Cement Association hired a professional to photograph this recently completed project," reported NRMCA Senior National Resource Director Jon Hansen. "The photos really show what a well planned, renewable energy, sustainable project it is."

More details on this NRMCA DAP project were reported in previous E-NEWS editions, most recently in the Week of August 8 edition. For more information, contact Jon Hansen at
