                                 ______
                                 

                         HON. ELLEN O. TAUSCHER

                             of california

                    in the house of representatives

                       Tuesday, December 7, 2004

  Mrs. TAUSCHER. Mr. Speaker, I rise to recognize the December 16, 2004 
dedication of the Government Center Complex in Fairfield, California, 
the county seat of Solano County.
  The new Government Center Complex is the most ambitious capital 
improvement project in the history of the county and I laud the 
project's energy efficiency measures.
  The Government Center Complex contains a six-story County 
Administration Center that achieves the lowest energy cost per square 
foot for any government facility in the State of California.
  The Government Center Complex also contains a five-level parking 
structure with over 1,000 parking stalls, 20 electric vehicle slots, 
and a rooftop photovoltaic solar array that generates 119 kilowatts of 
clean, emissions free power.
  Again, I commend county staff and the county's private partners on 
the timely and fiscally responsible completion of what is truly a 
landmark building for the citizens of Solano County.
