Rooftop Solar Display

We've Gone Solar!

In Nov 2022, we completed installation of a 1.2 megawatt solar panel array atop our roof, projected to generate enough energy to power the 140-plus events held here each year at the facility. Any surplus will be delivered back into the power grid to provide energy for local businesses and homes.

This solar project ranks second in Montgomery County for DC current capacity and 12th overall in the state at over 1.2 megawatts. Although our solar installation is meant for commercial use, they are large enough to equip 200 homes.
