Biopharmaceutical Company Installs a Premium Carport Solar System
EnterSolar partnered with a biopharmaceutical company to install a state-of-the-art carport atop its newly constructed parking garage. The company discovers, invents, develops, manufactures, and commercializes medicines for the treatment of serious medical conditions. The carport is a 545 kW solar photovoltaic system at the company’s headquarters in Tarrytown, NY.
Solar Photovoltaic System Specifications & Environmental Benefits
The solar system has a total capacity of 545 kW DC, comprised of over 1,700 individual panels, 16 string inverters, and an inverter-level data monitoring system with an integrated commercial weather station. The system is projected to produce about 660,000 kilowatt-hours of electricity annually. The system is mounted on a Long Span carport canopy, with full water management, at a 5 degree tilt to maximize solar production. This carport system was constructed atop the company’s new parking garage. The environmental benefit of the system is equivalent to powering 81 homes for one year or planting 101 acres of trees. The company‘s use of solar power will also result in the avoidance of about 861,833 pounds of CO2 per year.
Significant Financial Returns through Solar
The company owns the system, and was awarded a NYSERDA NY-Sun grant to help finance this project. NY-Sun is part of Governor Cuomo’s commitment to developing and expanding a healthy solar energy industry in New York State.
