Mercury Solar installs solar panel system at Reckson property

February 24, 2010 - Green Buildings

500 W. Putnam Avenue - Greenwich, CT

Reckson installed a new 100 kilowatt photovoltaic solar panel system on the roof of 500 W. Putnam Ave. The system is capable of delivering up to 50% of the building's energy needs during peak performance, and it's anticipated that it will provide approximately 5% of the property's annual energy needs.
The new solar paneled roof, installed by Mercury Solar systems in a little over four week's time and partially financed with State and Federal grants, aligns with LEED requirements. It provides onsite renewable energy both for the property and its tenants and it allows tenants seeking LEED Commercial Interior Certification to be eligible for points associated with its "Onsite Renewable Energy" category.
Reckson has embraced sustainability since 2007 when it launched its suburban sustainable program led by Jason Black LEED AP.
