NJ Motorsports Park (NJMP) in Millville is becoming one of the first motorsports entertainment complexes in the nation to go solar. SolarKal, an award-winning commercial solar broker, is supporting the installation, which will provide enough energy to support the majority of the park’s energy needs — dramatically decreasing the NJMP’s energy costs and CO2 footprint.
The clean energy generated by the installation will prevent the emission of an estimated 705 metric tons of carbon dioxide each year and is the equivalent of planting 830 acres of forest.
SolarKal’s CEO Yaniv Kalish said that “after years of considering solar energy, I am happy SolarKal had the opportunity to assist NJMP navigate the solar market and reduce its installation costs through our proprietary and rigorous process. As the cost of solar keeps coming down, the future will be powered by this energy source and we hope to see more New Jersey businesses follow MJMP’s lead.”
“This is an exciting development for New Jersey Motorsports Park,” said NJMP COO Brad Scott. “This is our first step in a commitment to becoming a more environmentally friendly facility.”
SolarKal ran a thorough feasibility and assessments process of the property, along with electricity usage to recommend a customized strategy and financing options. Next, SolarKal launched its proprietary process of matching prequalified solar contractors. Based on that process, SolarKal selected Infiniti Energy Services as the solar installer for this project.
“As a New Jersey-based firm, we are excited for the opportunity to develop new solar resources in our home state and to bring renewable energy to the premier motorsports entertainment complex in the Northeast,” said IES President Michael Kushner. “We look forward to working with our partners at the New Jersey Motorsports Park to create a low impact, aesthetically pleasing system design which will reduce their carbon footprint and the energy costs associated with operating the facility.”
