MGM Resorts International and NRG Energy have announced the completed expansion of the nation’s largest rooftop solar array.

The Las Vegas Strip is home to some of the most decadent hotels in the country, larger than life entertainment, and now, the nation’s largest rooftop solar array thanks to MGM Resorts International and NRG Energy’s recent expansion atop Mandalay Bay Resort & Casino. The expanded solar installation is equipped with more than 26,000 photovoltaic panels and at full production, will supply 25 percent of the energy for the entire Mandalay Bay Resort & Casino complex.

According to a press release statement, “it is projected that the expanded solar installation will displace approximately 8,400 metric tons of carbon dioxide (CO2) annually, the equivalent of taking more than 1,700 automobiles off the road.” In addition to providing pricing stability for MGM Resorts, this latest sustainable operation will reduce the amount of energy drawn from the southern Nevada grid during times of peak electricity demand.
