Solar panels to charge Cedar Rapids drinking water stations

  • Photo

CEDAR RAPIDS — Solar panel arrays are being installed next to three drinking water booster stations around Cedar Rapids.

The solar stations will provide electricity for the water towers under this city-led initiative.

One was erected last month by Eagle Point Solar of Dubuque at the northwest corner of Glass Road and Wenig Road NW. The electrical hookups and fencing work still must be completed before the station is active.
