Michael Grider from Mayor Burchett's office sent this response:

"...saw someone posted a question about solar panels at Tarleton Park on blog. That’s part of County project with Ameresco. We announced it back in 2015. Initially, the plan was to put the array on the Juvenile Justice Center property, but that didn’t work out (not sure why), so John Tarleton became the location for the installation. Here’s the release from back in 2015:"
