Looking at all the facts will show that the existing location behind Cuesta College is the best location for Morro Bay’s new sewer treatment plant. Consider this: There is enough acreage surrounding the Men’s Colony treatment plant to install a solar field that will accomplish a positive result for all concerned. It could furnish enough energy to service the needs of all the following: the entire city of Morro Bay, Cuesta College, Camp San Luis, county school building, Dairy Creek Golf Course, Chorro Park, California Men’s Colony and both men and women’s county jails.
PG&E could use this new source of power to offset its loss of the Morro Bay Generation Plant. Cuesta College could use the solar field as a working laboratory for its new renewable energy education center. Please consider battery energy storage packs, and all of the above named benefactors’ electric bill will be net zero.
