Clearwater Marine Aquarium is now harvesting the power of the sun in collaboration with Duke Energy by installing 250 kWAC of solar canopies atop its parking garage.
“Bringing solar to the Clearwater Marine Aquarium will have such a meaningful impact on our environment, the marine life that are cared for at this facility and the thousands of visitors who leave inspired to make a difference in the communities we serve,” said Melissa Seixas, Duke Energy Florida state president.
Duke Energy also installed four EV charging stations on the second floor of CMA’s parking garage. CMA guests, staff, interns and volunteers are able to use the charging stations for their EV needs.
Clearwater Marine Aquarium opened its $80 million expansion in 2020, including a 1.5 million-gallon habitat for resident bottlenose dolphins Hope, Apollo, PJ, Nicholas and Hemingway.
