UGE + Zerega Ave
A Community Solar Project
Location: New York, NY, USA
Installation Year: 2019
System Size: 640 kW
Annual Energy Output: 788,000 kWh (estimated)
Project Type: Ballasted, Rooftop
Project Scope: UGE developed this rooftop solar project in the Bronx, which is one of New York City's first and largest community solar projects. The building owner benefited by receiving a new roof for their property, along with ongoing lease payments.
Community Solar is a a newer solar model which allows for the energy produced from a commercial solar system to be used by community members, rather than only by the building's tenants. This results in a greater financial return to our clients and access to renewable energy for more people.
UGE is responsible for project development, system design, permitting, interconnection, and site coordination.
