Carports installed in three parking lots provide shade for park-goers' vehicles and absorb sunlight through roof-mounted solar panels. Forty acres of ground-mounted solar panels were also installed.
Excess power gets fed back into the power grid to supply local homes and businesses. It's the largest of its kind in New Jersey.
"Clean energy is right for the environment and our future, and we look forward to decades of environmental stewardship," Six Flags Great Adventure Park President John Winkler said.
