Russell Pacific Will Supply Nearly 6,500 Solar Modules and Inverters to Rio Tinto Stadium

This fall Russell Pacific is providing nearly 6,500 REC solar modules, Solectria inverters and carport mounts to Rio Tinto Stadium in Sandy, Utah. The stadium has commissioned Auric Solar to install the 2,020-kilowatt solar array.  When it is finished in October of 2015 it will be the 4th largest solar installation on any professional sports stadium in North America, producing enough energy to fulfill 73 percent of the stadium’s annual power needs and creating the largest energy counterbalance of any sporting venue in North America.

The environmental impact of transitioning from Rio Tinto’s current power system to the new solar installation will be equivocal to removing 450 cars from the road or planting 47,278 trees annually.
