The solar farm is comprised of 14,500 photovoltaic panels and is designed to meet 40 percent of the Aquarium’s annual electricity needs. In May, June and July it generated more than 1.8 million kilowatt hours of electricity.
In addition, upgrades were made throughout the Aquarium to make the facility more energy efficient and to conserve water.
Combined, we’ve avoided the creation of nearly 4,500 metric tons of carbon dioxide this summer. That’s equivalent to removing about 916 passenger vehicles from the road for a year!
