STAMFORD, Conn.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Altus Power, Inc., (NYSE: AMPS), the leading commercial-scale provider of clean electric power, and Brightcore Energy, a leader in developing and implementing renewable energy solutions for the commercial and institutional market, today announced a new solar project with Morgan Stanley (NYSE: MS) that will be installed on Morgan Stanley’s parking structure at its campus in Purchase, NY.
“Morgan Stanley is a leader in the global financial markets, and we’re excited to provide its Westchester site with a new source of clean energy benefiting their campus and the surrounding community,” said Gregg Felton, Co-CEO and Co-Founder of Altus Power. “We look forward to additional opportunities to work with Brightcore and Morgan Stanley in the future.”
“We are excited to see our work with Morgan Stanley become reality,” said Mike Richter, President of Brightcore Energy. “We are now looking forward to building the project and working with our trusted partner, Altus Power, who will own and operate the system and manage the off-take.”
“We are pleased to team up with Altus and Brightcore to gain access to new clean energy at one of our marquee locations,” shared Geoff Boulter, Global Head of Real Estate Services at Morgan Stanley. “This will not only further drive the operational sustainability goals of our Westchester campus, it will also support our local communities by providing an additional source of clean, electric power.”
The 2.7 megawatt solar array will be located on parking canopies at Morgan Stanley Wealth Management’s campus in Purchase, N.Y., and is expected to save the carbon equivalent of burning more than 2.9 million pounds of coal or more than 4,700 barrels of oil as compared to utility power. Morgan Stanley will benefit from 40% of the discounted, clean electric power generated from the project, with the remaining benefits to be offered to the local community.
