Solar Array, Rain Garden and Sustainable Landscaping Dedication Ceremony At The Sisters of St. Joseph’s Brentwood Campus

The system is expected to offset approximately 63 percent of the current campus electricity needs.

The ground-mounted fixed-array 1 MW 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.
