Flag City RV Resort in Lodi, Calif., has installed over 1,000 solar panels on the property to make the resort more environmentally friendly, according to co-owner Ricky Gill, whose family has owned the RV park for the past seven years

“We wanted to reduce our energy footprint, and very few resorts have gone solar to the extent that we have. We view this as an instance of us leading the way in terms of going green,” Gill said.

As reported by the Lodi News-Sentinel, to help reduce the resort’s energy bill and protect the environment, Nuance Energy installed 1,518 solar panels on the 18-acre RV resort earlier this year to generate 530 kilowatts of energy per hour, according to Flag City Manager Bobette Dowling.

“The panels were installed over the summer, we went live on Sept. 1. It’s quite a big project. We have 180 sites on 18 acres, so our energy bill was quite high. This year is our busiest year to date, and last year was super busy as well. In order to absorb some of the cost and go green, we decided to look into solar power,” Dowling said.
