Chip Ganassi Racing Teams were looking for a way to increase energy conservation in the racing industry as part of NASCAR and INDYCAR's green initiatives. As part of their green initiatives, Chip Ganassi Racing Teams wanted to install a solar sign lighting system in front of their corporate offices as well as upgrading the team’s outdoor lighting at both their Indianapolis and Concord, NC race shops to more energy efficient solar and LED lighting.

The existing light fixtures were outdated, expensive to maintain and didn’t provide adequate area illumination. The new lighting fixtures need to turn on instantly a so lighting would be on at full brightness immediately for safety. Also in choosing the best solution for increasing lighting levels, the issues of light pollution, glare control, and energy savings needed to be considered.

By replacing conventional sodium vapor and metal halide light sources with Sol’s high performance 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 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.
