Black Rock Solar heard from

Received this comment on previous post:
 Jessica has left a new comment on your post "Black Rock Solar at Hillside School/Peri Park": Hi Tim, Jessica here from Black Rock Solar. This project is being built for Hillside Elementary. We're installing over 50 kilowatts of solar to help them lower their utility bills. I'd be happy to keep you up to date on the project. We're hoping to have a little holiday event too. Please get in touch if you want more information! 

The learning curve necessary to manipulate Blogger since Google took over has manifest beyond my aging mind's ability or interest. It used to be simple. I will continue to post Comments until I get ambitious or someone explains why Google+ has my username and password not linked to this blog. 

Question for CGID

What the heck is this?
Canyon General Improvement District workmen are seen installing a valve and line to the rear of their yard along Canyon Way. One guy works while two supervise (actually two others were supervising but not shown in this photo).

Black Rock Solar at Hillside School/Peri Park

Without published public disclosure, Black Rock Solar, a spin off of Burning Man, has begun installation of photo-voltaic arrays in the area of Louise Peri Park formerly designated as a community dog park. Black Rock Solar is known throughout Northern Nevada for these installations that have proven to be considerable cost savings to school districts involved. One wonders who will own the installation and be responsible for the upkeep. Kudos given whomever was vanguard towards realizing the greening improvement to the community. Also noted near this site is a chain link fence installation with large gate; preventing access to the road that leads to the water tower on the hillside. Looks expensive. Who paid for this construct; CGID or county? Why are most the streetlights on Peri Ranch Road burnt out with winter upon us? Photos were taken November 13th, about 10am.
