Greenskies completes 120-kW rooftop solar project for Connecticut YMCA
Greenskies Clean Energy has announced it has completed a 120-kW rooftop solar power system in Hartford, Connecticut, at the Wilson-Gray YMCA. The solar panel, consisting of approximately 320 modules, will provide reliable savings by reducing annual electricity costs for The Y.
Located in the north end of Hartford, the Wilson-Gray Y borders the historic and underserved neighborhoods of Clay Arsenal and Upper Albany. Urban areas such as these consume more than two-thirds of the world’s energy and are responsible for more than 70% of CO2 emissions.
“The realization of this solar project will provide consistent energy to The Y’s seven-day facility,” said Stanley Chin, president and CEO of Greenskies. “It is a clear demonstration of the commitment of all involved to improve the community and support The Y’s mission to develop the minds, spirits and bodies of individuals. In addition, this project is an excellent example of how on-site solar energy generation has a positive impact on environmental, social and economic interests.”
Greenskies worked closely with Titan Energy, a local energy consultancy, and Connecticut Green Bank to help The Y bring this project to light.
“Titan Energy is proud of the management strategy implemented at Connecticut’s Y facilities to keep electricity costs low and predictable over the long term,” said Titan Energy VP Chris Ramm. “After Titan Energy conducted a detailed energy analysis of all Greater Hartford Y sites, the Wilson Gray Y emerged as a great candidate for solar due to the available roof space and energy profile of the facility. Titan Energy is pleased to have delivered additional savings through Greenskies Clean Energy’s solar installation for our long-standing relationship with the Wilson Gray Y.”
