Taconic, Clarion Complete Solar Installation at Flagship Bronx Property
Taconic Partners and Clarion Partners hosted a conference and reception Tuesday to celebrate the completion of their solar power project at their flagship Quality Communities property, Eastchester Heights, in the Bronx. The development partners marked the completion alongside project partners, local dignitaries and media.
“We’re very proud of this project and the positive impact it will not only have on the environment, but also the Bronx community,” said Andrew Schwartz, VP of residential asset management at Taconic. “We are committed to being a part of a solution to fight climate change and look forward to exploring solar and other sustainable technologies for more of our properties.”
Taconic and Clarion contracted Bright Power, an energy and water management consulting and construction company, to design and install 917 kilowatts of solar photovoltaic panels. The solar installation will produce more than 1.1 million kilowatt hours of clean electricity.
