The future of energy is already here.
Solar power is intelligent and inevitable. We’ve reached a tipping point where the economic, societal, and environmental advantages are staggering. The built environment of the future will incorporate solar energy wherever possible.
Cherry Street Energy installed 15,000 solar panels throughout Emory’s campus, offsetting 10% of peak power demand and furthering efforts toward transitioning to 100% clean energy by 2035.
Emory University by the numbers
The solar program will offset approximately 10% of Emory’s peak power demand.
The 16 total sites at Emory will provide up to 5.5 Megawatts of solar power.
15,000 solar panels
The solar program has reduced emissions by 4,300 metric tons, equivalent to planting 5,616 acres of forest in one year.
City of Atlanta
Cherry Street Energy has helped the City of Atlanta install solar programs on 17 municipal buildings to date, totaling 1.2 Megawatts, and aims to add over 7 Megawatts of solar capacity by the end of 2020.
City of Atlanta by the numbers
The solar program will offset approximately 23% of City of Atlanta’s peak power demand.
The 17 total sites at City of Atlanta provide up to 1.7 Megawatts of solar power.
3,810 solar panels
So far, the emissions reduced through this project are equivalent to planting 1,570 acres of forest in one year.
Cherry Street Energy supported the Jekyll Island Authority in their commitment to protect and manage the natural resources of Jekyll Island. We created a 4-acre solar array that generates electricity for Georgia Power, who distributes it via the grid.
Jekyll Island by the numbers
The site sits on 4 acres of decommissioned landfill that has been transitioned to renewable energy production.
The 4-acre site has a solar capacity of 1 Megawatt.
2,873 solar panels
So far, the emissions reduced through this project are equivalent to planting 1,500 acres of forest in one year.
From more efficient equipment to improved data analytics, new innovations optimize solar's impact while reducing costs.
New funding mechanisms and increased investment in renewable energy are making solar more available and affordable.
Changes to regulations and incentives are making it easier to procure, finance, and realize the benefits of solar programs.
