Please join us in celebrating the kickoff of a major energy efficiency project at Shadow Cliffs Regional Recreation Area in Pleasanton. The project includes solar panels that will generate 1.2 megawatts of energy annually – enough to offset electricity use for almost the entire Park District – along with three electric-car charging stations, a new recycled water line, and planting of native trees. This new solar carport system will also provide much-needed shade for the parking lot at Shadow Cliffs. We are thrilled to undertake this important new project, which will save energy, water, and money for decades to come.

RSVP: Public Affairs Secretary Ali Haynes, ahaynes@ebparks.org or (510) 544-2200.
