The Connecticut Green Bank announced that 55 Realty Drive in Cheshire, Connecticut, has closed on C-PACE financing for the installation of a rooftop solar PV system. The 26,458-sq. ft office building is home to six tenants, including Barker Specialty Advertising.
“Barker Specialty is committed to help build a sustainable future for our community and planet. We mitigate our carbon footprint through environmentally conscious actions, and partner with suppliers who responsibly source products and materials,” said Gerry Barker, president of Barker Specialty. “Adding solar to our property helps us take another step to our goals.”
The 102.4-kW solar system will be installed by Verogy, a solar developer headquartered in Hartford.
“To reach our goal of continuous reduction of our carbon footprint, we have looked inward to what we could control through business operations and culture. This project is a giant leap towards showing how our buildings can also be a part of the solution,” said Jane Leukart, director of sustainability at Barker Specialty.
