Rooftop PV System Funded by SunEdison and Renewable Energy Fund

The Connecticut Clean Energy Fund (CCEF), SunEdison and Whole Foods Market recently unveiled the 121-kilowatt (kW) solar photovoltaic (PV) system installed on the rooftop of the Whole Foods Market Distribution Center in Cheshire, Connecticut. The collaborative project was funded in part by Connecticut Clean Energy Fund, which provided a project grant of $516,223.

Ten percent of the 150,000 square foot roof of the Whole Foods Market building will generate 137,500 kilowatt hours (kWh) of clean electricity per year, supplying 10% of the facility’s total energy needs. The clean energy that the system is expected to deliver will enable the avoidance of 65 tons of CO2 emissions each year. “We look forward to installing much more solar with the help of the Connecticut Clean Energy Fund and our other hosts throughout the state,” said Claire Broido Johnson, partner at SunEdison, “to spread the benefits of affordable, clean solar power.”
