Building Land and Technology (BLT), owner of Silicon Harbor and builder of the larger Harbor Point development, joined community members and elected officials to officially launch the system, which is expected to generate 732,400 kilowatt-hours (kWh) of clean, renewable energy per year, enough to power 70 homes.
ENGIE Services U.S. installed 587.2 kilowatts (kW) of solar panels on the rooftop of the Silicon Harbor complex. The solar power system will significantly reduce the carbon footprint of Silicon Harbor and reflects BLT’s commitment to developing next-generation sustainable workplaces. Silicon Harbor’s solar installation is expected to produce enough renewable energy to offset up to 10% of the property’s consumption when it is fully occupied.
Silicon Harbor is located in Harbor Point, a LEED-ND Gold certified mixed-use development on the South End waterfront of Stamford.
Construction of the solar installation began in late March, and the system was first energized this summer. ENGIE Services U.S. performed the work in partnership with Reflective Energy Solutions, an energy broker headquartered in northern New Jersey and dedicated to helping commercial, industrial, and municipal customers make smarter energy decisions and investments.
