Fordham Prep and Fordham University, in a joint effort, teamed with The New York State Energy Research and Development Authority (NYSERDA) in the completion of the largest solar system installed in New York City.
The 3.1-megawatt solar array will offset a large portion of the electricity used by both schools supporting the mandating clean energy goal of 50 percent of electricity to come from renewable energy sources by 2030.
Fordham Prep is pleased to be a partner as this project advances Fordham Prep’s mission by striving for a sustainable environment and teaches our students to be responsible stewards of our natural resources. As a Catholic Jesuit school this partnership helps us answer the call issued by Pope Francis, who invites us to protect the global environment because it is sacred, both for its own God-given value and for the life and dignity of all humankind.” President of Fordham Preparatory School, Rev. Christopher J. Devron, SJ
