Panasonic started installing solar panels at Infineon Raceway last November, and they just announced the completion of the project this past weekend. The arrays feature Panasonic’s high-quality HIT photovoltaic panels, which are counted among the most efficient single-crystalline silicon PV panels in the world.

The installations are prominently featured atop many high-profile spots throughout the complex, including the main grandstand, the turn 10 sound wall, the Raceway Café, the Jim Russel Racing Drivers School, and the Infineon administration building. Thousands of NASCAR race fans flock to the track every weekend, so the panels are sure to get lots of exposure as they soak up the region’s abundance of sunshine.

    It’s helpful to have large visible solar installations at venues frequented by (for the most part) non-envioronmentally-friendly types as it helps to give credibility to and legitimize green power in their eyes. Infineon Raceway, Panasonic, solar (and all of us) are a winner with this investment!

    It is great to see sports venues investing in environmental stewardship. Many people and businesses will see these solar systems and may be inspired to look into renewable energy for their own use. I suggest environmental projects like this be made as visible as possible. Thanks, Mike, for covering.
