Jetro’s systems total 4.2 megawatts and will reduce CO2 emissions by almost 7 million pounds annually
DANBURY, CT January 18, 2018 — Ross Solar, a Con Edison Solutions company, announced today that it has completed the last of four solar installations for Jetro Restaurant Depot with the fourth installation occurring at Jetro’s Maspeth facility in Queens, New York. The combined size of the four solar installations, approximately 4.2 megawatts, makes Jetro the largest host for commercial rooftop solar in the Con Edison Company of New York utility service territory.
Comprised of 2,274 high-efficiency SunPower X-series solar panels, the Maspeth installation alone is expected to generate 921,230 kilowatt-hours of clean electricity per year and reduce CO2 emissions by more than 1.4 million pounds annually, representing the equivalent of 73,432 fewer gallons of gasoline used or more than 124 cars removed from the road. The energy produced by the solar power is enough to provide more than 84 households with electricity for a year.
“Solar is an important component of our long term strategy, helping us to reduce operational expenses and remain competitive, while underscoring our commitment as a responsible corporate partner to grow renewable energy,” said Jetro Chief Operating Officer Peter Claro. “Ross Solar’s commitment to quality, customer care, and full transparency, together with their expertise in navigating the complexities of large scale solar installations in New York, makes them the perfect partner for us.”
“Jetro’s dedication to investing in clean energy has been nothing short of exemplary. We thank them for the repeated trust they’ve shown in us to help them reach their sustainability goals, and we look forward to working with them again in the future,” said Josh Ross, of Ross Solar/Con Edison Solutions.
