The Pioneer Center for the Performing Arts is an iconic Reno landmark located downtown near City Hall. It is a private, non-profit cultural organization, and with 1,500-seats, is the largest public performing arts facility in northern Nevada. Black Rock Solar installed a highly technical 20 kW array at the Pioneer Center in March 2010. The system is projected to save the center approximately $4,400 per year on its energy bill. The Pioneer Center is home to some of northern Nevada’s most prominent performing arts organizations including the Reno Philharmonic Orchestra, Nevada Opera Association, and the A.V.A. Ballet Theatre.
