Encore worked in partnership with the Greater Burlington YMCA to deliver a third-party-owned roof-mounted solar project to provide this community institution with cost savings on their electricity bills as well as educational opportunities for its members. Encore worked extensively with the YMCA’s management team and construction contractors to integrate the solar project into the new facility that was constructed on an abandoned property in downtown Burlington, Vermont. The new solar array complements the sustainability goals outlined by the YMCA to be energy efficient while also benefiting both the environment and the YMCA’s financial position. The project is currently owned by one of Encore’s strategic investment partners.
The project will provide approximately 25% of the building’s energy requirements with clean solar power. In addition to the economic benefits, the project will offset the carbon equivalent of the fuel consumption associated with 35 passenger cars annually or nearly 17,500 gallons of gasoline consumption.
The project was commissioned in August 2020.
