Energy output: 241,900 kWh/year
This more than 30,000 sq. ft. rooftop in Port Morris, the Bronx, is owned by BNS Real Estate, a New York City based real estate investment & management group. BNS chose to install a Community Solar farm on the building’s otherwise unused rooftop in order to increase the property’s total value. In September of 2018, installation was completed on what is now the Bronx’s second Community Solar farm.
The energy produced from this solar system is redistributed to 128 community off-takers ranging from a large church to low and middle income households in the Bronx.
