This large-scale beverage distribution center along the Bronx River in Hunts Point. Looking to lower operational costs, the client hired the 174 Power Global team to provide turn-key engineering and construction, installing more than 2,000 solar panels on the building’s flat rooftop, generating 711 kW in peak power and offsetting more than 700,000 pounds of coal burned each year.

The client was able to install this solar system at no cost and now pays a rate much lower than what they were previously paying through the grid. They will continue to save money on electricity costs for decades to come.
