DARIEN, Conn., Aug. 15, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Green building in New York City will take a huge leap forward in September when Voltaic Solaire officially unveils The Delta, the first private completely self-powered building in the city. The $700,000 private use building, which will triple as a bed and breakfast, restaurant and residence, will combine solar and wind energy to generate its own heat, electricity and hot water – meeting 100% of its energy needs.
The project spearheaded by Voltaic Solaire broke ground in 2010 and was built in cooperation with Ikea, Samsung, Sharp, Kingston Block and Eemax. It will serve not only as a showcase for green building technologies but also as an ongoing educational resource for schools and tour groups.
The Delta project is being honored by Soluxe Solar, a Connecticut based solar company, with their Solar Flare; a weekly award honoring companies, individuals or programs helping advance the solar cause.
"For many years urban green design was defined by what people said couldn't be done," says Soluxe Solar CEO Jeffrey Mayer. "Rather than being defined by limitations, The Delta highlights the incredible possibilities for urban green construction when ingenuity and determination combine and companies come together to create something revolutionary. It is the perfect project to be highlighted by our Solar Flare."
The solar company announces its weekly "Solar Flare" honoree on the company's Facebook page, https://www.facebook.com/SoluxeSolar and website, www.soluxesolar.com.
