Yesterday was James Cameron’s moment to shine with news that his “Avatar” sequels will be solar-powered. Today, the spotlight shifts to a new state-of-the-art film lot outside Philadelphia, PA called Sun Center Studios.

Constructed to attract big-budget filmmakers to PA, Sun Center is the first purpose-built campus and sound stage facility specifically designed for feature-length films and episodic television programs. The $85 million studio sits on 33 acres and includes five studios, seven soundstages, a 4-D movie theater and a high-tech museum encompassing some 370,000 square-feet.

In addition to a geothermal energy system, the studio also recently unveiled a new 216 kilowatt photovoltaic array.

“Sun Center Studios’ commitment to sustainability extends throughout the entire facility from the efficient design of the campus’s new buildings and stormwater management, our use of organic and locally grown foods whenever possible, to our participation in ‘smart-grid’ technology programs through integrated demand response and the installation of electric vehicle charging stations along with a fleet of hybrids for our production company clients,” commented Adam Rotwitt, Senior Vice President of Sun Center Studios. ‘We believe our studio will serve as a role model for other local Pennsylvania businesses as well as companies operating in the film and television industry.”

Keep the green coming, Hollywood.
