STATEN ISLAND, NY — IGS Solar, LLC, a turn-key commercial and residential solar provider, recently teamed up with Advanced Solar Products (ASP), a solar energy design and construction firm, to complete the installation of a 386 kW solar array above a 17,000 s/f parking structure at the Church at the Gateway in Staten Island.
“ASP did a great job of working through a very tough winter to deliver this project on-schedule and on-budget. We’re looking forward to working on many more projects together” said Patrick Smith, vice president of IGS Solar.
The system, which includes 1,290 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. To date, over 76,000 kWh have been generated and delivered to the Church.
“It has been a great experience working with IGS Solar and Advanced Solar Products,” said Rev. Tim Mercaldo, senior pastor of Church at the Gateway. “Using clean energy and being environmentally responsible were important goals of our church, and with the team’s expertise, we’ve been able to make that happen. Our entire congregation is very pleased with the project.”
For over 20 years, Advanced Solar Products (ASP) has led the way in solar energy design and construction using sustainable technologies. They have installed over 55 megawatts of ground and roof-mounted PV systems ranging in size from under 10 kilowatts to over 14 megawatts.
