1.5-MW Solar Canopy Energizes Cincinnati Zoo:
Cincinnati Enquirer, by Mike Boyer, March 27, 2011
http://www.usatoday.com/news/nation/environment/2011-03-25-solarzoo28_ST...

Nearly 4 acres of solar panels have been installed over a vast span of the
Cincinnati Zoo parking lot. Billed as one of the largest public urban solar
displays in the country, the $11 million project consists of 6,400
photovoltaic solar collection panels assembled on more than 100 metal arrays,
15 to 18 feet high. They cover about 800 of the 1,000 parking spaces at the
zoo's main entrance. The project is designed to produce 1.56 megawatts of
electricity, about 20% of the zoo's annual need and enough to power 200
homes. The project allows the zoo to lock in the price for about 20% of its
electricity at about 8 cents a kilowatt hour for the next seven years. The
agreement gives the zoo the option to buy the system in the eighth year if it
chooses.
