Nation's Largest Single-Building Solar Energy Project Planned for Atlantic City

Atlantic City Convention Center

Atlantic City Convention Center has just signed a 20-year agreement with Pepco Energy Services to have a 2.36 megawatt solar roof installed on the building.  When completed by the end of this year, the project is projected to be the largest single-building solar energy project in the United States.  That’s 13,321 photovoltaic panels covering roughly two-thirds of the building AND a savings of roughly $4.4 million in electricity costs over the 20-year deal. 

Under the terms of the agreement between the convention center and Pepco, Pepco will pay for the installation and the convention center will then purchase electricity generated from Pepco. 

Financial details of the multi-million dollar project have not been released.  The installation is set to begin within 30 days and be completed by the end of the year.

    Great story! I’m linking to this in hopes that our future convention center is built in the same fashion.

      No doubt, if they build a new one, it should positively be green. Another one is the David L Lawrence Convention Center, which received LEED Gold and does some good things in terms of impact.
