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.
