Solar Electric System


Gold mounted a $170,000 solar system on the roof of his warehouse in 2008. Thanks to help from the Bronx Overall Economic Development, the Bronx Empowerment Zone, and the New York State Energy Research & Development Authority, his company had to pay only $10,000. The system generates 25% of the company's electricity and saves more than $3,000 a year. "There's an immediate impact to the bottom line," says Gold.
