Bring on the Sun!

If you're visiting The Marine Mammal Center during the next few weeks (and we hope you do!) you may see some new additions to the facility. Today. a construction crew began putting up scaffolding along the Center's animal care building in preparation to install 80 new photovoltaic panels. Thanks to a generous donation by PG&E, the additional 28 kW cells will help us shave thousands of dollars off of our electrical bill! Work is expected to be completed in January. Thank you PG&E!
