Ocean Bay Apartments is shining light on how to combine affordable housing preservation and climate change mitigation. The 24-building, 1,395-unit complex now boasts a 575kW solar photovoltaic (PV) system, designed and installed by Bright Power. The system produces enough power to offset the emissions from 104 cars driven for one year.
"Sustainability is a key consideration in how we must approach the revitalization and long-term viability of our housing stock, and was paramount in our work at Ocean Bay. Bright Power's partnership was instrumental in the seamless design and implementation of our energy-efficient measures and solar power system. Thanks to their expertise and dedication, over 4,000 residents at Ocean Bay will experience lower utility costs and a healthier, greener place to call home," said Michael Rooney, Jr., Principal of RDC Development.
