Soluxe Solar, the company that leverages solar power to help homeowners and small business owners fulfill their energy needs, has conferred the Solar Flare award on the green building project, The Delta.
Located in New York City, The Delta is a construction project implemented by Voltaic Solaire that has the distinction of being the first privately owned building in the city to self-fulfill its energy needs. Valued at US $700,000, the building will house residences, a restaurant and a bed and breakfast establishment. All of its energy needs comprising heating, hot water and electricity will be met by power generated from wind and solar energy.
Work on the project commenced in 2010 with Voltaic Solaire leading the project in conjunction with Samsung, Ikea, Sharp, Eemax and Kingston Block. The building will not just be a paradigm for green building technology but will also serve as an educational resource for students and tourists.
According to Jeffrey Mayer, CEO of Soluxe Solar, The Delta is an epitome of possibilities enabled by green urban construction resulting from a combination of determination and innovation. He considers the project to be a perfect candidate for receiving the Solar Flare award.
The Solar Flare is awarded every week by Soluxe Solar to individuals, companies and projects in honor of their efforts to promote solar technology.
Soluxe Solar assists small business owners and homeowners to leverage the sun's energy using solar power systems. The company is headquartered in Darien, CT, and has years of expertise in the solar technology and energy markets.
