Cincinnati Zoo Taps Into Solar Energy

Cincinnati Zoo and Botanical Garden, an internationally recognised haven for exotic plant and animal species, is hoping to draw crowds with its latest attraction when it becomes home to America’s largest publicly accessible urban solar panel array.

A 1.64 megawatt (MW) PV based solar energy system comprising 6,400 solar panels will make up a canopy that will also provide shade for the zoo’s 1000-space parking lot. The solar canopy will generate enough electricity to power 200 homes per year.
