BACH 3 - does this mean that somewhere in Ohio is Bach 1 and Bach 2? The Icon spotted this plate on a slate-colored Chevy Cruze in Ada. And, it's on a Bald Eagle special plate. Anyone who can tell us about the plate's meaning, please let us know at: info@adaicon.com

Ada's solar array

Kevin Mierzcjewski, flying high over west Ada, captures the solar array at ONU. The football stadium is to the left. The array has 18,000 panels on 11 acres of land and is the first array in Ohio which tracks the movement of the sun. ONU provided the land for the $4 million project and contracted with AEP Energy of Chicago to pay for the installation and operation. ONU will purchase electricity directly from the array without needing to invest capital in the array’s construction and maintenance.  The array produces about 2 megawatts of electricity annually. One megawatt produces enough electricity to serve 500 to 1,000 homes. (Kevin Mierzcjewski photo)
