“This is something I’ve wanted to do for several years,” said owner Dale Earnhardt Jr. “We spent a lot of time researching this. Operating a big shop with over 100 employees requires a lot of power. These solar panels, while not a baseload energy source, will be a great addition to helping us meet part of our energy demand.”
In correlation with the rooftop panels, JR Motorsports is installing a monitor in the JR Nation Retail Store that will show in real time how much energy is being produced. The store is open to fans Monday through Friday from 8:30 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. ET, and on Saturday from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. ET.
