Did you know that Jackson County Parks, in cooperation with A Greater Applegate and the Pacific Power Blue Sky program recently constructed a solar panel array the park that will generate a significant amount of the Park’s electricity? The Pacific Power Blue Sky grant program provided $89,530 to install the panel that generates approximately 24.5 kWp. The array looks beautiful in the park, serving as a shade structure for visitors looking to get out of the hot summer sun. There are beautiful interpretive displays and education elements surrounding the solar panels for park visitors to learn more about the sustainable elements of the project. You can even view the electrical generation in real-time
