Concord Suites hotel in Avalon will host a “solar celebration” to unveil its new $500,000 rooftop solar array 11 a.m.-1 p.m. Thursday, June 7.

The outdoor event will feature a hard-hat tour of the rooftop installation, which will reduce operating costs at the hotel. The panels, which provide 60 percent of Concord Suites’ overall energy usage, will also reduce the carbon emissions by more than 60 tons annually, according to a statement from Concord Suites.

The 434 solar panels were installed in November 2011 by Hutchinson Plumbing Heating Cooling.

Concord Suites is located at 7800 Dune Drive in Avalon. For more information, see
