Largest roof-mounted solar array installed in Atlantic City

The Atlantic City Convention & Visitors Authority (ACCVA) announced that it has awarded Pepco Energy Services a 20-year power purchase agreement with the Atlantic City Convention Center (ACCC) to install the largest single roof-mounted solar array in the United States.

Under the 20-year contract, Pepco Energy Services will build, own, operate and maintain the 2.36-megawatt solar array for the Atlantic City Convention Center. Construction will begin during the month of June and will be completed by December 31, 2008. The Convention Center is operated by the management company SMG.

The solar panel project is the first in a series of initiatives the ACCVA is planning, including participation in the Convene Green Alliance. The ACCVA was invited to participate as a founding member of the Convene Green Alliance, a grass-roots, industry initiative spearheaded by several associations that seek to affect positive environmental practices through national, regional and local outreach and education.
