Interesting! But to be fair, I think the price can't be counted as $42 million for the solar. You would have to subtract out the price of what a non-solar parking lot resurface and shaded structure would be.

Actually, the arrays are grid-tied, so the power does go out if grid power goes down. That's not really a problem in this area, though.

I believe the cost was closer to $20 million, ignoring the parking lot resurfacing and steel structure. Is the non-power part of the structure worth it? Hard to say. I like it. It provides shade for flea markets and other events also, that used to be in direct sun.

And the parking areas are huge, although the picture above doesn't show that well.
