The Fairfax 5 Theater just installed a 27 kw PV system, making the landmark a greener place to watch a film. While not the very first theater to be solar powered (hello, Palm Theatere), it is the first major motion multiplex cinema to slap on some PVs for renewable power. The rooftop system is made up of 42 solar modules, and utilized state rebates and federal tax credits to help speed up the pay-back period to just 5 years. The system is expected to save over $600,000 in energy costs over its 30 year lifetime. Not too bad! And considering the theater has been around since 1952, it is likely it’ll be around to see that savings.
