“The Milton and Betty Katz Jewish Community Center’s adoption of solar energy will have an environmental impact that is worth celebrating,” says Jeremy Conner, CEO of National Energy Partners, the solar development firm that is managing the solar project. The solar energy system includes 943 modules mounted on the roof of the Milton and Betty Katz Jewish Community Center in Margate New Jersey. The system is projected to produce approximately 452,196-kilowatt hours of electricity each year – enough energy to meet over 42% of their overall energy needs.
According to the United States Environmental Protection Agency, the solar energy produced by The Milton and Betty Katz Jewish Community Center through the life of their solar system will eliminate greenhouse gas emissions equivalent to 7,994 Metric Tons of Carbon Dioxide – or, the equivalent to 2,788 tons of waste being recycled instead of landfilled. The reduction of C02 emissions is equivalent to 8,739,545 pounds of coal burned, or 899,547 gallons of gasoline consumed. The Milton and Betty Katz Jewish Community Center’s adoption of solar energy will sequester carbon equivalent to growing 132,187 tree seedlings for ten years.
John Rios, Chief Financial Officer for The Milton and Betty Katz Jewish Community Center, describes their transition to solar energy as “movement to become sustainable and support the Tikkun Olam mission to repair the world.”
