A large-scale beverage company successfully lowered their electricity costs by implementing a rooftop solar power system. Lead by the 174 Power Global team, this facility was able to lower their overhead electricity costs.
Liberty Distributors operates a 92,472 sq. ft. distribution center in Brooklyn, NY. They first decided to go solar in 2015 to reduce operational electricity costs. In 2018, they decided to expand the system beyond their own electricity needs to create an additional revenue stream. The 174 Power Global team designed and built this 626 kW rooftop solar system in 2015. 1,617 solar panels were installed to produce enough energy to power two Liberty Distributors’ facilities including this one. In 2018, another 414 solar panels were added, covering any remaining roof space, to be redistributed to community members.
Councilman Hoehmann first proposed the idea of a solar field on Clarkstown’s landfill to turn trash into flash bringing new life to the landfill and maximizing power use savings. The 174 Power Global team managed the turnkey installation of this 2.36 MW ground mount solar system on Clarkstown’s capped landfill, adding 8,744 solar panels across 13 acres of land and commencing the first large scale municipal solar field in New York State. There was zero-development cost to the Clarkstown and instead, save the town more than $4.6 million over the life of the system. The solar system will also offset 170,000 tons of carbon each year, putting Clarkstown on the map as a leading example of sustainable energy.
