The Ross Solar Group has completed a 1.56 MW rooftop solar installation for food service provider Jetro Cash and Carry at the company's Hunts Point Restaurant Depot facility in the Bronx, N.Y.

Jetro's array is expected to generate over 1.8 GWh of electricity per year. The array incorporates a supervisory control and data acquisition (SCADA) system that allows utility Con Edison to remotely monitor and control the array.

The solar power installation was funded in part through awards Ross Solar received from the New York State Energy Research and Development Authority under Gov. Andrew Cuomo's NY-Sun initiative.

"The Jetro project demonstrates that large solar installations are viable in New York City, and we hope to see other businesses follow their lead," comments Cuomo. "The smart grid employed here is exactly the kind of innovative solution that New York State needs to increase the resiliency of the grid and protect residents from power outages."
