Krasdale Foods Adopts Solar System in NY
Krasdale Foods, a family-owned business providing grocery distribution, merchandising, and marketing to independent grocery store owners, added a solar installation to its operations in the Bronx, New York.
Krasdale's new 2.7 megawatt (MW) community solar project will share its environmental and financial benefits with the local community. At least 300 residents of the Bronx can subscribe to the project and receive credits on their electricity bill for a portion of the solar energy generated.
The system will generate an estimated 3.4 million kWh of solar energy per year. The company worked with PowerFlex, a national provider of solar, storage and EV charging solutions for commercial customers.
“We are proud to partner with PowerFlex on this monumental community solar project,” said Gus Lebiak, Krasdale’s president and COO, in a statement. “Krasdale continues our mission of helping the communities we serve, and this new solar roof is a commitment to clean energy for the Bronx, its residents, and Krasdale employees.”
PowerFlex received more than $1.3 million in support from the New York State Energy Research and Development Authority (NYSERDA) through its NY-Sun Program, which is helping make solar more accessible to families, businesses, and communities across the state.
