Chacharone Properties, a commercial property developer and manager in Worcester, Mass., has partnered with Solect Energy to install a 650 kW solar system on the roof of its office and industrial property.
According to Alex Keally, senior vice president of business operations and development at Solect, the project – Chacharone’s first solar project – will help the company “not only reap financial benefits from the system, but also make a positive impact on the environment.”
Prior to exploring solar energy, Chacharone Properties implemented other initiatives to go green, such as installing motion-sensor lighting and converting 20% (so far) of its properties to LED lighting.
“Solar has provided us with a new, non-traditional source of revenue, improved our environmental footprint, and helped modernize our company – all in order to achieve our primary goal of providing quality commercial space in central Massachusetts,” said James Chacharone, principal at Chacharone Properties. “It’s been incredibly satisfying to witness the positive response from our tenants and business partners.”
