In August 2010 the 3MW Pocono Solar Project came online after just 3 months of construction. Consisting of nearly 40,000 American-made photovoltaic modules covering 25 acres, the Pocono Solar Farm has produced over 18 Million kilowatt-hours (kWh) to date, and was originally projected to produce more than 72 Million kWh of energy over the first 20 years.<p>

The environmental attributes associated with the system will offset more than 2,300 metric tons of carbon dioxide annually–equivalent to the emissions from 106,529 propane BBQ grills–and it will generate enough power to meet the electricity needs for close to 300 homes beyond the power needs of the Raceway. Pocono Raceway’s Solar Farm is able to meet 100% of the facility’s power needs as well as offset all of the additional power required by NASCAR during an event at Pocono. During the summer months, the raceway uses approximately 50 sheep to help maintain the grass within the confines of the solar project.<p>
