December 10, 2013 By Linda Hardesty

Energy Manage Ross SolarThe Ross Solar Group completed a 1.56 MW rooftop solar installation for Jetro Cash and Carry at the company’s Hunts Point Restaurant Depot facility in the Bronx, NY. The system also integrates a supervisory control and data acquisition (SCADA) system that allows Con Edison to remotely monitor and control the system, helping to protect the utility’s customers from power outages such as those that occurred during Hurricane Sandy.

Jetro’s rooftop system is comprised of 4,760 SunPower solar panels and is expected to generate in excess of 1.8 million kWh per year. The solar system installation was made possible through awards that Ross Solar received from the New York State Energy Research and Development Authority (NYSERDA) through Governor Cuomo’s NY-Sun initiative.
