With the rapid development of the solar industry over the past decade, policymakers, utilities and other stakeholders have increasingly tried to pinpoint the most accurate compensation mechanism for solar energy generation. Feed-In Tariffs, Performance-Bonded Incentives, SRECs, net-metering and community solar programs are an example of policies designed to spur development in renewable energy and/or accurately compensate the owners of these systems for the benefits they bring to the electrical grid.
On Wednesday, October 26, the leading reinsurance provider Swiss Re, a founding member of the RE100 initiative, broke ground on a 2.7 MW solar system at their United States headquarters. Over 100 people attended the ceremony, which took place on the patio of Swiss Re’s Armonk corporate campus. EnterSolar is honored to partner with Swiss Re to develop this marquee solar project, the largest in Westchester County.
