Did you know that the Atlantic City Convention Center operates the largest single-roof power solar array in the United States?
According to the Convention and Visitors Authority, the new solar power system avoids releasing 2,349 tons of carbon dioxide into the atmosphere.
This savings is equivalent to recycling 734 tons of waste instead of sending it to the landfill.
