Solar Contract with Washington Gas and Electric

Solar Contract with Washington Gas and Electric

Nate Greenberg, Business Development Manager for Washington Gas and Electric (far right) celebrates the signing of an agreement to install solar panels on several of the roofs of MJBHA. Mr. Greenberg is pictured here with Faina Stepensky, MJBHA Director of Finance, Jennifer Zukerman, MJBHA Development Director and Fil Rodriguez, Building Services Director who worked on the details of this agreement for close to one year before finally coming to terms that are extremely favorable for MJBHA. This agreement represents plans for the largest solar install at a private school in the greater Washington area, and MJBHA is especially pleased and proud that the project was awarded a Project Sunburst Grant from the Maryland Energy Administration. Approximately 1/7 of our energy will be produced by the system, which is expected to be installed this July.

We also wish to thank parent volunteers Felix Kushnir and Benny Berkowitz (not pictured) for having reviewed the documents and helping facilitate the agreement.
