Agua Hedionda Lagoon installs solar carport

CARLSBAD — Agua Hedionda Lagoon Foundation will unveil the latest exhibit at its Agua Hedionda Lagoon Foundation Discovery Center at 10 a.m. April 1 with an eco-friendly and sustainable solar panel carport. It will showcase how solar power operates and how this device generates electricity back on the grid for the public.

In an effort to increase awareness in the San Diego area that focus on the environment, SDG&E Sustainable Communities Program backed the Agua Hedionda project. 41 projects were completed during the last 10 years.

On hand for the ribbon-cutting ceremony will be Carlsbad Mayor Matt Hall, the Carlsbad Chamber of Commerce CEO, Ted Owen, Agua Hedionda Board Chairman Mike Metts, Peder Norby Energy Neutral Coordinator for Agua Hedionda, and representatives of SDG&E.

The Agua Hedionda Lagoon Foundation and Discovery Center Academy for Environmental Stewardship for local third grade students, delivers an in-depth, participatory curriculum through a series of three annual on-site visits to the center on the southern shore of the lagoon.
