Sixty solar panels were stolen from the American River Parkway Foundation building this week.

The panels were all donated by SMUD to encourage solar electricity use in households. They provided power to the American River Foundation offices, according to Executive Director Dianna Poggetto.

“I am saddened that individuals continue to vandalize our building for a few hundred dollars’ worth of copper when it costs the Foundation thousands of dollars to repair,” Poggetto wrote in a news release.

The panels were attached to the shade structure just outside the building.
