EnterSolar to develop 2-MW system for insurance provider in New York
EnterSolar has been selected by Swiss Re to develop a 2-MW ground-mounted solar system for the wholesale provider of reinsurance, insurance and other insurance-based forms of risk transfer and its American headquarters in Armonk, New York. Construction will begin this fall with expected completion in the spring of 2017.
The system is designed to offset 60% of the power utilized by the Armonk campus, and will provide significant environmental benefits to the Westchester County community.
“We are honored to have been selected by Swiss Re to partner with them on the development of this important solar initiative for New York. This system will rank among the state’s largest, and the pride we feel to have been selected at the end of a highly competitive process is proportionately rewarding,” said Paul Ahern, president, EnterSolar.
Swiss Re is a founding member of the RE100 initiative, which strives to unite the world’s largest companies in a shared commitment to use 100% renewable power.
