New York — The Ross Solar Group has reached an agreement to install three additional solar projects for Jetro Restaurant Depot at the company’s College Point, Maspeth, and Port Chester facilities in metropolitan New York.
Comprised of nearly 8,000 high efficiency SunPower solar panels, the three rooftop installations total over 2.59 megawatts, once again demonstrating the viability of large scale solar installations in the New York City and Westchester markets.
In 2013, Ross Solar installed a 1.56-megawatt SunPower solar power system installation for Jetro at its Bronx, N.Y., facility, which, at the time, was the largest rooftop solar installation in New York City. It was also the first solar power system to integrate a supervisory control and data acquisition (SCADA) system to allow Con Edison to remotely monitor and control energy production.
“Solar is an important component of our long term strategy, helping us to reduce operational expenses and remain competitive,” says Peter Claro, chief operating officer of Jetro. “Ross Solar’s commitment to quality, customer service, and full transparency, together with their expertise in navigating all of the various complexities of large scale solar installations in New York City, again made them the clear choice as the right partner for us.”
Robert Kline, director of commercial sales for Ross Solar, says: “We are proud to partner with Jetro once again on these high profile renewable energy projects, and we appreciate the confidence and level of trust that they continue to place in us.”
According to estimates provided by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency, the three new systems to be installed will offset over 2,220 metric tons of greenhouse gas emissions annually.
Jetro Restaurant Depot is a wholesale cash and carry foodservice supplier offering a broad selection of high quality products at low prices to independent restaurants, caterers and non-profits, with over 100 locations throughout the United States.
