SunLight General Capital, a New York City based solar finance and development company, is pleased to announce the purchase of a 256 kW solar system located in Ohio. The solar arrays are located on the roofs of three major public buildings: Cleveland Clinic Foundation (101 kW), Euclid Public Library (79 kW) and City of Euclid Town Hall (76 kW). The projects were initially developed by Evergreen Energy Solutions between 2009 and 2011.
Together, these solar arrays reduce carbon emissions by more than 500,000 pounds annually. Another metric, according to the Environmental Protection Agency, is that the creation of these solar projects was equivalent to preserving 275 acres of U.S. forests. SunLight General Capital is proud to support and care for these renewable energy projects: they not only make public facilities greener, but they make economic sense for the institutions as well.
