Bloomberg Center at Cornell Tech Campus

Distributed Sun was selected to design and develop the solar capability for the Cornell Tech campus. Serving as Cornell’s partner, Distributed Sun accomplished the best design and electrical engineering to fit the unique solar rooftop canopies on The Bloomberg Center and the neighboring Tata Innovation Center academic buildings. The system deploys 2,093 panels over the two buildings and generates 1,127 MWhs of electricity each year.

Cornell appreciates the engineering expertise and electrical systems guidance that Distributed Sun provided as we developed and opened the first phase of our brand-new Roosevelt Island campus,” said Diana Allegretti, Director of Design and Construction at Cornell Tech. “Their teams supported Cornell to accomplish the best design and electrical engineering to fit these unique solar rooftop canopies.”
