This week, the Bloomberg – JFK Airport Park Solar Project was launched in New York City. The large-scale solar photovoltaic (PV) project will enable Bloomberg L.P.’s global headquarters in midtown Manhattan and its downtown data center to partially convert to clean solar energy. The ribbon was cut on the project this week, on which Bloomberg’s sustainability team, alongside purchasing, facilities, and legal collaborated. The project utilizes “Remote Net Metering”, a program that enables sites with poor solar characteristics but significant energy consumption to benefit from a solar system on an alternative site. This project is sited on three warehouses in the Springfield Gardens section of Queens near JFK Airport. It is expected to produce 1.8 million kWh of energy annually, enough to power 244 homes, and eliminate 535 metric tons of carbon. In Queens, NY, the JFK Airport Park Solar Project (credit: EnterSolar) The project is being developed by NYC-based EnterSolar, whose managing director, Peyton Boswell, said, “While Manhattan often presents challenges for solar energy, we are proud to be partnering with Bloomberg, one of the world’s most recognizable brands based here in New York, on this renewable energy project.” In addition to being the largest remote net metered project in the city, this project is the first to use remote net metering to power a midtown Manhattan skyscraper with a remotely-sited solar PV system. The JFK Airport Park project is being noted for utilization of remote net metering, which allows sites with poor solar characteristics but significant on-site load to benefit from solar systems installed on an alternative site with excellent solar characteristics. Bloomberg L.P. headquarters at 731 Lexington Avenue in Manhattan (credit: Bloomberg) Originated and developed by EnterSolar, private green energy investors, and supported by funding from Governor Cuomo’s NY-Sun initiative, the project is comprised of a 1,500 kW solar installation across three adjacent logistics facilities. It is located at 145-99 and 145-79 226th Street and 145-68 228th Street. The multi-building system is the largest rooftop solar array in Queens and is among the largest rooftop solar projects in New York State, comprised of over 5,500 solar… NOTE:This is a summary of a post found on Real Street Tech | The Smart Place For CRE.Parts of it may be missing.
