Distributed solar energy firm UGE International has interconnected a 740-kW rooftop community solar project, located on the rooftop of a beverage distributor D. Bertoline & Sons-owned distribution center in Peekskill, New York.

T-Mobile is one of the off-takers of the clean energy from the project. The clean energy from this project will help T-Mobile reduce its carbon footprint as well as save on electricity costs.

D. Bertoline & Sons will earn lease payments for hosting the solar installation for a period of 25 years.

“D. Bertoline & Sons is proud to serve as a community solar project host. We’ve turned our rooftop into a source of cleaner, cheaper electricity, and simultaneously a source of long-term lease revenue for our business,” said Dominick Bertoline, President and Chairman of D. Bertoline & Sons.

This project adds to UGE’s growing portfolio of self-owned and operated community solar projects in the country and is expected to bring in an annual recurring revenue of about $222,000.
