New York plumber Sunrise Solar Solutions this week severed the ribbon of a 226.1 kW solar array in Tarrytown Self Storage in Tarrytown, New York. Those who subscribe to the solar system benefit from using the reduced energy while reducing the load on the grid in the immediate vicinity.
“Since Sunrise Solar Solutions was founded 11 years ago, it has been our passion and mission to bring renewable energy and energy efficiency to as many households and businesses as possible and to play an important role in fulfilling New York’s energy vision,” said Douglas Hertz. President and CEO of Sunrise Solar Solutions. “We believe that anyone who wants a clean energy lifestyle should be able to achieve that goal, and it is our goal to achieve it.”
Paul Ferraro, President of Tarrytown Self Storage, had tried to make his business greener and then turned to Sunrise Solar Solutions to convert the roof of their self storage system into a clean renewable energy system that didn’t just have enough power for the building itself, but enough energy to supply the surrounding houses and apartments with electricity.
“This project is a win-win situation at every level,” said Ferraro. “We’ve effectively converted our roof into the equivalent of an extra floor of our rental facility, which now serves as a green energy source to power homes and businesses across Tarrytown. I feel privileged to be able to make solar available to the many home and business owners in Tarrytown who have been waiting for a path to solar energy. “
Ferraro said he plans to expand Community Solar to other parts of Westchester County and is already discussing future plans with Sunrise to put solar panels on the rooftops of his other companies in order to create more community solar programs across New York.
“We are working to make a huge impact on energy use in Westchester and we hope to lead that movement with additional community solar programs,” said Hertz. “It is so rewarding for us to know that we are making a real, measurable positive impact. And because we live and work in the area, I can see and experience it firsthand. “
