OSSINING, N.Y. -- Terra Tile & Marble now has solar power providing nearly 100 percent of its energy needs.
Ossining Town Supervisor Susanne Donnelly and 25 local leaders and business owners celebrated the first solar installation by a local business as part of the Solarize Ossining-Briarcliff campaign.
Energize NY financed the installation of solar panels on the 30,000-square-foot headquarters for Terra Tile.
“The idea behind the Solarize campaigns is to help homeowners and commercial property owners organize as a community to get lower rates from qualified solar suppliers to make it both less expensive and easier to install solar,” said Nina Orville, program manager of Solarize Westchester.
Orville added, “We are very pleased that our first round of Solarize campaigns, which involved 10 Westchester municipalities, including Ossining and Briarcliff Manor, resulted in 200 residential installations totaling 1.4 MW. The commercial program is closing in October, and to date we have seven commercial contracts for over 270 kW, with a number of additional large projects pending.”
The Solarize Ossining-Briarcliff campaign aims to help businesses and individuals save money and help the planet.
