On-site solar for Staten Island church

A 386 kW solar array has been installed above a 17,000 square-foot parking structure at the Church at the Gateway in Staten Island, New York, US.

Developed by IGS Solar, LLC, in partnership with Advanced Solar Products (ASP), IGS financed, owns, and operates the solar project.

The system, which includes 1290 solar panels, is expected to generate over 500,000 kWh per year for the church, and will produce enough electricity to meet 80% of the facility’s power needs.

Rev. Tim Mercaldo, senior pastor of Church at the Gateway, said: ‘Using clean energy and being environmentally responsible were important goals of our church. Our entire congregation is very pleased with the project.’
