In an effort to reduce energy costs and divert spending on education, the Orchard School District utilized funds to install solar photovoltaic panels which doubled as carport shade structures. The $7 million structures consisted of 3 different canopy designs of cantilevered steel column and beam systems on drilled pier foundations. Completed in 2009.
