Greenskies Clean Energy and Vanguard Energy Partners completed a 573 kW solar energy system for the Port Authority of NY & NJ. The project will provide discounted electricity to the Port Authority Trans-Hudson’s (PATH) MacMillan Bloedel Building and Train Control Center in Jersey City, New Jersey.
Equipment suppliers included:
- Inverters: Solectria Solar PVI 60TL Inverter
- Inverter Racking: Ecomount Gen 1
- Modules: Phono Solar 385W Panels
- Mounting/Racking: KB Racking EkonoRack 2.0 Racking System
The solar energy system is expected to reduce greenhouse gas emissions (GHG) by nearly 11,925 metric tons over its 25-year service.
The Port Authority issued a Request for Proposals in October 2018. Greenskies partnered with Vanguard to bid on the project, and the two were awarded the work. The installation consists of roughly 1,500 solar panels.
