Subject: [CPEO-BIF] Solar brownfield to power Toledo, Ohio zoo
Solar array to supply power to Toledo Zoo
Brownfield site will again be productive

July 22, 2014

A massive, 2.1-megawatt solar array that has put 22 acres of vacant South Toledo land back into production is to be dedicated today. It’s the kind of comeback that supporters believe will become less common across Ohio because of a recent bill Gov. John Kasich signed into law discouraging investments in renewable power.

The ceremony for the Rudolph/ Libbe project near the Toledo Zoo is expected to draw a contingent of area business and government leaders interested in seeing how land contaminated by past industrial practices, known as brownfield sites, can go back on the tax rolls and generate clean energy while reducing blight.

In this case, a group of local investors led by Rudolph/ Libbe Cos. - a limited liability company called Anthony Wayne Solar Number 1 - is doing that for one of the region’s largest employers and one of its most popular destinations, the Toledo Zoo.
