Harrah’s Rincon Casino Powered by the Sun
1 MW DuraTrack HZ™ system provides 25% of energy needs
Albuquerque, NM – 3/24/10 – Harrah’s Rincon Casino now has a new addition to its southern California location: a 1 MW tracking system that now provides 25% of the casino’s electricity needs. Constructed by EPC and module manufacturer Suntech Power, the system will provide substantial energy savings over time, remaining at a levelized cost for the lifetime of the project.
A popular gaming destination for Californians and tourists alike, Harrah’s Rincon Casino chose Array Technologies’ DuraTrack HZ™ tracking system for the installation due to its ability to generate up to 25% more energy than conventional fixed-rack, as well as for its reliability, durable design and field tested performance. When compared to other trackers on the market, the DuraTrack HZ™ system provides the best return on investment—through smart, innovative engineering that maximizes ground coverage while minimizing installation costs and material expenses.
Located on 5.5 acres of land, the site is part of the Luiseno tribe’s commitment to sustainability and its efforts to reduce the casino’s impact on its environment.
