Bloomberg's Princeton Office is Going Solar
From the Bloomberg Blog:
…we are close to completing installation of a 1.8 megawatt solar power system that is expected to generate the equivalent of over 50% of the Skillman office’s electricity. The Bloomberg facilities and sustainability teams have been working with SunPower Corp. and Integrys Energy Services to install this eight-acre, ground-mounted solar tracking system.
Bloomberg will buy the clean power generated from the system at prices below retail rates, providing a long-term hedge against rising power prices with no initial capital investment. The system will be owned by Solar Star NJ VI, LLC, a wholly-owned, indirect subsidiary of Integrys Energy Services, Inc. Solar Star will sell the solar renewable energy credits and environmental attributes associated with the system.
