Atlantic City Goes Solar

03/24/2009


The Atlantic City Convention Center in Atlantic City, New Jersey, has completed installing the largest roof top solar system in the United States. The solar system contains 13,321 photovoltaic panels and can produce a maximum capacity of 2.4 megawatts. This equates to approximately 26% of the convention center's electricity and will lower its greenhouse gas emissions by over 2,300 tons per year. The solar panels, owned and operated by Pepco Energy Services, cover 290,000 square feet of roof top space on the 500,000-square foot building.
