Atlantic City Convention Center Ceremony Dedicates Largest Single Roof Solar Array in the United States

(Atlantic City, NJ March 5, 2009) -- Today’s solar roof dedication marks the completion of the largest single roof-mounted solar array in the United States. The 2.37 megawatt rooftop solar power system, which was physically completed in December 2008 is comprised of 13,486 Mono Crystalline Solar Panels, capable of producing 26 percent of the convention center’s annual electrical consumption. "There could not be a better, more high-profile model for environmental leadership than the solar-powered Atlantic City Convention Center," said Governor Jon S. Corzine.
"With our economy and our planet in peril, it is imperative that we make the hard choices and big investments needed to change the way we produce and consume energy as a society. I want to thank Jeff Vasser and the Atlantic City Convention & Visitors Authority (ACCVA) for having the foresight and decisiveness to act in a social responsibly manner."

“The Atlantic City Convention Center is pleased to have been at the forefront of meeting Governor Corzine’s goals in fulfilling clean energy solutions to doing business in New Jersey,” said Jeff Vasser, President of the Atlantic City Convention & Visitors Authority.

"While promoting environmental stewardship through an investment in zero emissions solar technology, Pepco Energy Services and ACCVA were able to add 8,000 man days of green jobs to the local economy," stated David Weiss, President and Chief Operating Officer of the Energy Services Division of Pepco Energy Services.
