Bill Clinton opens Westchester, New York’s largest solar array

The former US president Bill Clinton helped Zurich-based insurance firm Swiss Re open its new solar array at its US headquarters in Armonk last week.

The 2.7MW array constitutes the largest solar facility in Westchester and was built by local commercial solar provider EnterSolar. The project was supported by NY-Sun, the solar development arm of the New York State Energy Research and Development Authority (NYSERDA).

Clinton helped cut the ribbon as the company launched the array, which is comprised of more than 7,700 PV panels, and expected to provide 60% of the power to the 700 employees in the Swiss Re offices.

“This is a company that for more than a decade has made a commitment to addressing climate change in a way that works for its employees, works for the company and works for the economy as a whole,” said Clinton at the ceremony on Thursday.

Swiss Re Americas CEO and President Eric Smith said the US$7 million project shows both the company’s commitment to Westchester and to addressing climate change.

“We understand the science behind climate change, we have been committed to it for many, many years,” Smith said.
