Quest Renewables congratulates general manager of Atlanta’s new sports and entertainment complex, Scott Jenkins, on keeping the complex on target to receive LEED Platinum certification. Quest is honored to support Atlanta sports’ teams owner Arthur Blank’s commitment to reach the highest environmental standards. Solar power is a major component of the sustainability vision for the new Atlanta complex, set to open late August 2017. Part of the initiative includes a 617kW QuadPod solar canopy that will generate enough electricity to power nine home games.
You can read more about the innovative and complex construction of the new stadium and Blank’s sustainability vision in Georgia Tech Alumni Magazine’s article in their Fall 2016 issue. The article mentions the selection of Quest’s QuadPod long span solar canopy to optimize the use of a surface parking lot adjacent to the complex without compromising system size or overall system cost.
