Chip Ganassi Racing Teams, Inc. and Sol, Inc., a world leader in solar and energy efficient grid-connected LED outdoor lighting solutions, have partnered together to lead the way for increased energy conservation in the racing industry by upgrading the team’s outdoor lighting at both their Indianapolis and Concord, NC race shops to much more energy efficient solar and LED lighting. The solar lights produce no pollution, cause no harmful environmental effects, and require no grid electricity to operate. The grid-connected lights use up to 75% less energy when replacing traditional lighting sources.
By replacing conventional sodium vapor and metal halide light sources with Sol’s high performance 20/20™ solar and grid-tie LED lights, the Chip Ganassi facilities have lights that are much brighter, will last longer, and are providing significant energy savings while improving visibility in the parking lots for visitors and staff.
The partnership will see Sol use NASCAR, IndyCar and GRAND-AM races for client entertainment at multiple races while also using the team’s assets to market their products.
