Solar Industry – Boston Properties Adds Solar to Carnegie Center
Boston Properties Inc. (BXP), the largest publicly traded developer, owner and manager of Class A office properties in the U.S., has added a 5.2 MW solar photovoltaic (PV) onsite renewable energy system at Carnegie Center in Princeton, N.J.
Delivered in partnership with Ameresco and Greenbacker Renewable Energy Co. under a power purchase agreement (PPA), the 13,000-panel system is comprised of four large PV-covered parking canopy systems located at 101, 302, 510 and 701 Carnegie Center. The power generated by the system is expected to provide at least 75% of the total annual energy consumption at the four buildings, which total 554,000 square feet. The canopies provide year-round covered parking for approximately 1,400 spaces and were designed to complement the surroundings.
