Has anyone thought of talking with Reynolds and Wake Forest Innovation Quarter about installing solar panels above their massive parking lots? It could be a way to help hide the acres of parked cars, provide shade for the cars parked below them, provide some shelter from rain/snow, and create a second and positive use for these massive parking lots, as energy producers. The shade may even help reduce the temperature of downtown in the summer? I'm surprised WFIQ hasn't already installed solar panels above their parking lots. It's something they can brag about to potential tenants. I've seen other cities do this. Cars can still park in the lots. The solar panels are elevated above the parking area.

Reynolds and Innovation Quarter probably think they're sitting on gold mines and would rather not put any more $$$ into the lots than they have to.
