I’m Ed Smith, an Antioch auto accident attorney. The Board of Directors issued an authorization for Bay Area Rapid Transit (BART) to work with Solar City on an upcoming project for the Lafayette and Antioch station.

BART Customers – Made in the Shade

The Board of Directors for BART signed a multi-million dollar contract with Solar City on Thursday, October 27, 2016 to install solar panels at its new stations.  The agreement indicates that BART will be purchasing generated electricity from these installations. The main goal of BART is to provide a fast and efficient method of transportation for commuters that decreases the carbon footprint from motor vehicles in the Bay Area. For these reasons, the solar panel project not only offers great alternatives for environmentally friendly energy consumption for the environment, but will also provide customers with shade over some areas of the parking lots for both stations.

Project Information

The cost of the project is estimated to be approximately $3 or $4 million dollars for the stations in Antioch and Lafayette. The project will be funded by the budget for energy operating. The installment of the solar panels for the Lafayette station is expected by late spring of 2017 and in Antioch by fall 2017.
