LAS VEGAS – Thanks to DC Solar and Las Vegas Motor Speedway, a dozen lucky fans will have the chance to get a charge out of the 2016 NASCAR Weekend.
LVMS and DC Solar, LVMS’ official off-grid mobile solar partner, are teaming to provide six solar-powered charging stations for electric vehicles at this year’s event, which runs March 4-6 at the superspeedway. Twelve EV owners will be chosen at random to receive free parking passes for each day of the race weekend.
“DC Solar is a proven leader in its industry, and we’re thrilled to partner with a company of its stature,” said LVMS president Chris Powell. “Expanding the use of clean energy at our facility is a goal we continue to strive for, and DC Solar will help us do exactly that on NASCAR Weekend and beyond. We look forward to many years of a great partnership and are excited to welcome DC Solar to the LVMS family of sponsors.”
The charging stations will be set up at a premium location close to the LVMS Fan Engagement Area and ticketing gates. The multi-year agreement between LVMS and DC Solar will boost green and sustainability initiatives for both companies.
“We’re excited about our new partnership with Las Vegas Motor Speedway and are proud to be the official solar provider for their off-grid power needs,” DC Solar CEO Jeff Carpoff said. “It’s a tremendous opportunity for us to expose racing fans to the benefits of green technologies and to show how the sport can benefit from sustainability.”
In addition, DC Solar is providing 10 LED mobile solar light towers that will be used throughout the LVMS property on NASCAR Weekend. The light towers will run after sunset using solar energy stored during the day, providing fans with ample lighting in strategic areas in a safe and clean way.
