Success Stories

Twin Pines

Business Need

Peter Bourbeau has been in the real estate management business in New York City for over 25 years, always looking for ways to innovate and improve his services. One day, Peter got a call from Quixotic Systems, a manufacturer of solar energy products about NYCEDC’s Solar Thermal Program-a program that helps fund solar energy projects. Wanting to take advantage of the possible monetary savings clean tech offers, Peter submitted the forms that same day.


Within a few weeks Peter received a call form NYCEDC informing him that he was awarded $40,610 in funding to install solar thermal panels at Twin Pines, a mixed residential/commercial building in the Bronx. Peter contacted Quixotic who went to work and installed the system. This was Peter’s second successful installation and he’s looking forward to a 3rd and 4th solar project with the help of NYCEDC. That’s alternative energy in action.
