Down To Earth

Solar tour



A while back we posted on the large-scale solar park which could find its home near Cle Elum, a sleepy little down in Central Washington which has more than 300 days of sunshine annually. Called the “Tenaway Solar Reserve,” it’s 400-acres in size and would generate power for 45,000 homes plus manufacture panels. Currently, they are still going through a local permitting process and hope to be up and running by 2011, but tomorrow at 11:00am, you can take at first look at the previously-logged property. Starting at Cle Elum’s Centennial Park---located on the NE corner of Third Street and Teanaway Avenue---there will be a conference with development information and economic projects followed by a tour of the site at noon.
