NextEra Energy Resources announces new solar plant in operation at Sisters of St. Joseph Brentwood, New York campus

The ground-mounted fixed-array system, co-developed and installed by Long Island-based EmPower Solar is located on approximately five acres owned by the Sisters of St. Joseph. In accordance with the Sisters of St. Joseph’s Sustainable Land Ethic Statement, a five-acre parcel designated as degraded woodlands was chosen to host the array and a new rain garden. More than 50 trees were saved from the wooded area and were transplanted elsewhere on the property.
