The first section of PV solar panels will be installed at the Atlantic City Convention Center. When completed at the end of 2008, this will be the largest single-roof solar power array installation in the United States. The rooftop solar power system will be comprised of approximately 13,321 modules/panels and is part of a 20-year power purchase agreement with Pepco Energy Services of Arlington, VA.

This 2.36 megawatt rooftop solar power system will cover two-thirds of the main roof of the convention center or about 290,000 square feet. The generation of renewable energy from the Atlantic City Convention Center Solar Project will avoid release of 2,349 tons of carbon dioxide into the atmosphere, per year.
