New Energy Equity, along with its development partner Chart House Energy, has completed a 326-kWDC solar development project consisting of three separate municipal buildings in Norton Shores, Michigan. The three rooftops, totaling about 21,000 sq. ft, includes the City of Norton Shores Fire Station, Public Works building and City Hall. Working with the City of Norton Shores and Chart House Energy will add to New Energy Equity’s continued expansion throughout Michigan.
New Energy Equity provided the upfront development financing, engineering and design support and long-term financing for the project. The project allows the city to save money on its annual electricity bills with no upfront costs. New Energy Equity will continue to work with the City of Norton Shores, Chart House Energy and other local organizations across the state to promote the use of clean renewable energy.
“This project is expected to offset around 420 MWh per year, roughly equivalent to the annual energy usage of about 50 households. We are thrilled to see our partnership with New Energy Equity result in the successful installation of solar across the region,” said Jon Ledsworth of Chart House Energy.
“When cities like Norton Shores prioritize access to clean energy for their community, they not only save money on their electricity costs, but they also reduce their carbon footprint.” says New Energy Equity CEO and president Matthew Hankey. “We are excited about this project and the partnership between the City of Norton Shores, New Energy Equity and Chart House Energy. ”
