CA Biotech Achieves LEED GOLD Status with Onyx Solar + Storage
Onyx is the owner and acting utility for the 1.1MW solar PV and 1000kWh battery storage project
Onyx completed the installment of a 1.1MW solar and 1MWh storage solution for a major biotech company in Northern California in 2022. This project supplies a PV+Storage integrated solution to reduce power costs and manage the facility's peak energy demand.
Onyx managed oversight of construction at the facility, inclusive of utilizing a large crane pic consisting of (6) 8-hour days of weekend work to accommodate for the facility's production areas and production schedules.
Onyx complied and reported as required with all Safety OSCHA and CDC compliance regulations to maintain a construction schedule during the 2020 COVID Pandemic.
The 1.1MW solar PV and 250kW / 1000kWh battery storage system supports the facility's LEED GOLD Status while providing for a sustainable, uninterrupted power supply for the company's production and manufacturing lines.
The solar + storage project allows for net metering at the facility within PG&E utility territory in Northern California.
First multi-family community in New York state to be awarded LEED Platinum certification
As a direct result of Onyx’s efforts, StuyTown and Peter Cooper Village became the first multi-family communities in New York state to be awarded LEED Platinum certification, the highest level of green building certification.
The StuyTown and Peter Cooper Village project also benefits New York City as a whole. All energy generated by the StuyTown panels is collected and distributed in the power grid by the local utility, Consolidated Edison (Con Edison). This extra solar energy will help reduce outages by taking pressure off the grid when demand for electricity is peaking on hot summer days.
Onyx supported the facility's initiative of obtaining LEED GOLD Status, qualifying renewables on site that provided a 5% offset to total energy costs.
