Convention Center to unveil rooftop solar array today

The Wildwoods Convention Center will be hosting a media event at 11 a.m. today to unveil the completion of a solar energy installation at the facility.

Wildwood 365 will be on hand, and will be reporting from the scene.

Comprising 1,694 solar panels, the solar electric system will provide 24 percent of the venue’s overall energy usage and reduce the convention center’s carbon footprint by 179 tons annually.

The 474 kW system was developed by Tioga Energy of San Francisco and constructed by Pro-Tech Energy Solutions of New Jersey. The project was financed by Energy Finance Company (EFC). The final result is a greener, cleaner venue that will benefit the Wildwoods Convention Center’s employees, patrons and the environment.
