Ecological Impact

WMS Gaming's solar power system will produce enough clean electricity to offset any one of the following over the 25 year life of the system:

The carbon sequestered by
seedlings grown for 10 years.
The CO2 emissions from
gallons of gasoline consumed
The CO2 emissions from
bottles of BBQ propane burned.

This 36 kW solar power system contributes to the building’s USGBC Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) Gold status as an energy efficient and environmentally friendly place to work. The solar power system is a milestone because it is the first installed by HelioPower in Nevada on a LEED Gold building.

With 180 solar modules from Canadian Solar, the solar power system will produce 56,638 kilowatt hours (kWh) of renewable electricity per year.
