The Bexley Planning Commission had been expecting to hear more this week about a proposal to allow private investors to install carports and solar panels at the city's new police station.

But the project was pulled from the commission's agenda Monday night, according to building director Kathy Rose.

It's now unclear when the proposal might go before the panel.

Bexley's solar panel project was one of 25 awarded more than $13-million in grants late last year through the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act's state energy program. The company Solar Vision LLC applied for the $335,328 grant to install solar panels on four carport structures that would be built at the new police station parking lot.

Solar Vision LLC would finance the project through a power purchase agreement. Dovetail Solar and Wind would install the solar panels and ProtekPark Solar would provide the steel for the construction.

David Cohen, central Ohio regional manager for Dovetail, said Monday that officials from the solar partnership would "probably go back" to the planning commission some time in the future, but a timetable hasn't been determined.

When asked if the group was still interested in working with Bexley, Cohen said, "We have other stuff going on."

Mayor John Brennan said the proposal was pulled from the planning commission agenda because many questions remain unanswered. The commission was probably going to table the proposal without additional information, Brennan said.

"The ball is in their court," he said. "They need to get their ducks in a row and have everything planned as promised."

Service director Bill Harvey has said the city was awaiting answers to several questions, including information on equipment warranties and the amount Bexley would save on utility bills.
