Continental Building Products & EnterSolar Celebrate 2.4MW Rooftop Solar System


On June 10, 2019, Continental Building Products hosted a ribbon-cutting event to mark the completion of their 2.4MW rooftop solar system at their manufacturing facility in Buchanan, NY. The producer of gypsum drywall and complementary finishing products partnered with EnterSolar to develop and implement the largest community solar project in the Con Edison utility system, and one of the largest in New York State.

State and local legislators and business leaders, along with NYSERDA, Con Edison, Tri-State Solar Alliance and EnterSolar joined the event marking the completion of this notable installation.

“In addition to recognizing financial benefits from the system, it was important to us to give back to the community and our environment. By utilizing solar, we developed a system that would not only reduce the demand on the grid, but would be shared by our neighbors as well,” said Jay Bachmann, president and CEO of Continental.

We’re excited to share some of the press we’ve received for the event:
