Suffolk's Green Field

The largest solar farm in the Northeast is almost done & more interestingly, its located in Suffolk County!!!

The project, which spans nearly 200 acres, is located at Brookhaven Lab & can power approximately 4,500 homes.

The coolest part of this project is the collaboration between Brookhaven Lab, BP & LIPA where BP gets access to free land, Brookhaven Lab has access to an array of data & LIPA is purchasing the energy. Its win-win-win.

Now one may ask themselves why a real estate school cares about a solar farm. The answer is simple. Green construction is the future and we believe that Brookhaven Lab's research from this project will greatly advance the field. We cannot wait to see the fruits of this research. Best of the luck to the venture.
