Press Release | Middletown, CT
August 16, 2016

Solar installations designed and built by Greenskies Renewable Energy, a Middletown-based solar energy company, have now produced more than 10 million kilowatt hours (kWh) of electricity.

Greenskies, a company formed in Westbrook, CT in 2008, reached the energy production milestone on September 4th, said Michael Silvestrini, the company’s president and co-founder. Its current installed capacity generates enough energy to power about 2,400 average New England homes per year. By year’s end, the company’s installed capacity will be sufficient to power 3,700 average New England homes. According to statistics produced by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency, Greenskies solar installations have offset approximately 15 million pounds of carbon dioxide emissions.

Greenskies currently has 28,000 solar panels installed and in operation across the northeastern U.S. It is on schedule to install an additional 44,000 by the end of 2013, which would bring its aggregate count to over 72,000 installed solar panels.
