William W. Fetterley, Half Moon's chief operating officer and an American Institute of Architects associate with a number of major power-generation projects under his belt, notes that the solar and wind company is scouting this region for more opportunities where either model is feasible.
"We believe there are a number of commercial properties in this region that are good candidates for solar power – whether it's roof-mounted like at i.Park or ground-mounted where there's enough land for that. Especially in regions like the Northeast, where electricity is expensive, solar is a solid proposition for all concerned," Fetterley said.
Half Moon expects to have the system at i. Park Hudson fully operational by mid-December. When complete, it will generate more than 1.2 million kilowatt hours of electricity a year – enough to power over 120 homes for a year – while removing the equivalent of the annual harmful greenhouse emissions of over 160 cars from the environment. Because of the climate and meteorological considerations, the panels, which have a life expectancy of 20 years, will generate the most energy in the summer, when energy is most expensive, and least in the winter, when electricity is at its cheapest.
