NYS company, SunWize, gets contract to install solar-power projects at Veterans Affairs hospitals around the country

Kingston, NY-based SunWize Technologies earned a U.S. Veterans Administration installation contract for 10 solar-power systems at VA medical centers around the country, including three in Upstate New York.  The projects, estimated at $7.8 million, will vary in size from under 50 kilowatts to more than 400 kilowatts.  NYSERDA is providing incentives to help offset the costs for the NYS installations, based on savings per kilowatt-hour.  The projects are designed to help meet federal agency goals to reduce greenhouse-gas emissions by 30% by 2015.
