The Los Angeles theme park, Six Flags Magic Mountain, will soon be the location of California’s largest solar energy project.

The high-octane theme park will be installing a new 12.37-megawatt solar carport over the main parking lot. This project will be in partnership with Solar Optimum and DSD Renewables.

“We’re honored to partner with Six Flags and Solar Optimum on this solar-plus-storage project through DSD’s Developer Network and commend Six Flags’ commitment to onsite renewables,” said Danielle Fidel, Senior Director, Developer Network at DSD. “Using their parking lot for solar canopies will not only offset 100 percent of the park’s energy use, it will also provide the added benefit of shaded parking for customers. A win-win for everyone.”

The solar facility will produce 20.8 million kilowatt hours of energy annually, which equates to 2,874 homes and 1.79 million smartphones charged. According to the press release, the facility will be the largest single-site commercial renewable energy project in California and will offset 100% of Six Flags Magic Mountain’s energy usage.

“Here in California, innovation and climate action go hand-in-hand – our success as America’s economic powerhouse and the world’s fourth largest economy is built on our ambitious transition to a cleaner, greener future. Six Flags’ commitment to clean energy is the type of work that will power our future and ensure our kids have a healthy planet to call home,” said California Governor Gavin Newsom.

“This is a thrilling day for Six Flags as we advance our commitment to environmental stewardship, substantially increasing solar power generation capacity at our parks,” said Jason Freeman, Six Flags Vice President of Operations, Public Safety, Engineering & Maintenance.
