About This Project

Berkeley Carroll is a vibrant, independent, preK through 12th grade college prep school where students develop their critical, ethical and global thinking in and out of the classroom.

The Berkeley Carroll is deeply committed to developing ethical and critical thinkers who are exceptionally prepared to lead and succeed in an increasingly complex and changing world.

Centrally located in Park Slope, Brooklyn, our school attracts families from all parts of New York City and New Jersey and provides free bus service for students.

Special Features

This project took place between October 2015 and July 2018. EcoMen worked very closely with the school in order to satisfy their legal requirements for contracts and then we worked closely with the NYC Landmarks Preservation Commission in order to ensure the installed system would meet all required rules for this Historic/Landmarked property.

Major Components:
LG Solar Modules
SolarEdge Inverters

CO2 Emission Saved

Each kWh of electricity can be generated using fossil fuel, which generates CO2 emissions. The number shown is the quantity of CO2 emissions that would have been generated by an equivalent fossil fuel system. This number depends on the systems’ location; the emissions level used is sourced from the EPA.

For further information on the effect of CO2 emissions on the environment, see the United States EPA Greenhouse gas equivalencies calculator, which is located at:

Equivalent Trees Planted

Trees absorb CO2, thus reducing CO2 environmental pollution levels. The number shown is the equivalent planting of new trees for reducing CO2 levels. This number depends on the systems’ location; the tree absorption level is sourced from the EPA.

These environmental benefits are from Late June 2018 through early September 2018.

System Production Time-lapse

This is a time-lapse video of the system’s production from 9/1/2018 through 9/5/2018.
