5.6 kilowatt photo-voltaic installation on the roof of Greenburgh town hall.

The Town Hall functions as the center of government for the Town of Greenburgh, population approximately 86,000, the largest town in Westchester County (the first county north of New York City). Greenburgh has been an Energy $mart Community since February 2003 and actively conducts outreach to educate its residents and businesses about energy conservation/efficiency and renewable energy.

Town officials sought to install this 5.6 kW photovoltaic system primarily as a demonstration system to increase public awareness of the need for and benefits of renewable energy. The Town Hall’s central location, high visibility and large number of visitors made it an ideal setting for this purpose. A monitor in the lobby displays real-time data about the system’s performance. The Town also benefits from the electricity produced by the system and the fact that it helps reduce the Town Hall’s peak demand.
In order to first reduce the building’s energy consumption, in early 2006 the Town Hall completed an energy-efficiency retrofit, installing new high-efficiency lighting and occupancy sensors.
