Who is Solar Man?August 16, 2018
Aquatica San Diego’s renewable energy plan brought more than new solar panels and reduced CO₂ emissions to the waterpark; it now has a resident sunny superhero! Solar Man made his debut at May’s solar panel unveiling, and now the sun-powered superhero is bringing a little sun-powered fun to all! Witness the adventures of the man in the sun-colored suit himself on Facebook and YouTube as he explores Aquatica San Diego, including thrilling slides, scrumptious dining, and, of course, the friendly flamingos!
New solar panels will power 80 to 90 percent of Aquatica's annual energy use! The renewable energy from the sun will reduce CO₂ emissions by more than 10,000 metric tons over the life of the system (approximately 20 years), equal to removing 124 passenger vehicles off the road. This is important to SeaWorld's Waterpark, as increasing carbon emissions have been linked to ocean acidification and declining coral reefs.
