San Jose's School District Goes Solar: THIS is Municipal Innovation
Original post made by Mike on Jul 25, 2007
Here's San Jose's Schools District being SMART, and INNOVATIVE. Just look at the commercial partners: Bank of America and Shell (probably others, too).
THIS is the kind of thing we need to see more of in Palo Alto, a city that has been resting on the laurels of PAST innovative hegemony.
The PAUSD BOE and our policy-makers - including senior staff at city hall should look at this as a lead in to similar projects. THIS is what I mean by "aggresive business development".
Someone in San Jose had BIG idea, and made it work. Kudos!
I want to see more of this sort of thing in Palo Alto.
We have a lot on our plate; we're behind in infrastructure spending; we're looking for new revenues to bolster our schools - and so on. It's ideas like this one, in Sna Jose, that LEVERAGE EXISTING SOCIAL AND CAPITAL INFRASTRUCTURE that we need to see more of.
Congratulations, San Jose!
