PNC (NYSE: PNC) and Integrys Energy Services announced today the completion of a $3.3 million solar project financing deal related to photovoltaic units on a Harvard University building. The units will produce over 600 megawatt-hours (MWh) of renewable energy annually.
Integrys Energy Services developed, installed and commissioned the roof-top solar units. The energy produced will be utilized by Harvard for use in the building, which is located in Watertown, Mass. The net price of the energy is currently pegged at or below the cost of power from the grid.
“We see great value in our relationship with PNC as we seek to continue to broaden and expand our delivery of clean, renewable solar energy to current and future customers,” said Joel Jansen, managing director of energy assets at Integrys Energy Services.
