Powering Thrills by the Sun
Six Flags Magic Mountain is thrilled to announce the installation of a new 12.37-megawatt (MW) solar carport, being built over the main guest parking lot. This installation, in partnership with Solar Optimum and DSD Renewables, will rank as California’s largest single-site commercial renewable energy project, distinguishing Six Flags as a leader in the theme park industry around the world. The project is scheduled to begin development in Fall 2023.
This 12.37-megawatt solar project with a 2MW/8MWh battery energy storage system can deploy 20.8 million kWh of energy annually, which is equivalent to the electricity consumption of 2,874 homes and 1.79 million smart phones charged. Upon completion, the park will be able to offset 100% of its energy usage with solar power.
For 62 years, Six Flags has been committed to protecting and improving the environment and its communities, striving towards the expansion of sustainability and ESG-related initiatives and efforts. Six Flags’ three sites, including Six Flags Discovery Kingdom and Six Flags Great Adventure, will rank as the largest volume of onsite Solar PV systems for any U.S. organization, with a combined total of 43.37 megawatts. By actively working to reduce the environmental impact of its amusement park operations, Six Flags continues to make meaningful advancements in adopting solar power throughout its operations and otherwise reducing greenhouse gas emissions.
