TARTA to build solar array at headquarters

The Toledo Area Regional Transit Authority (OH) received a $1 million grant from the Federal Transit Authority to build a solar-panel array at its headquarters and to replace the facility’s lights with energy-efficient equipment. “Toledo is increasingly recognized as the solar capital of the Midwest, so this award is particularly fitting,” said U.S. Rep. Marcy Kaptur, who announced the grant. “It will not only help TARTA harness the power of the sun, but also lower its operating costs and reduce its carbon footprint.” According to the Toledo Blade, TARTA has not yet calculated the annual energy savings.
