Greenwich Post July 14, 2011

The Delamar Greenwich Harbor Hotel was recently equipped with a solar thermal system to integrate clean energy into its usage. Sound Solar System, LLC, a clean energy integration and installation company based in Old Greenwich, completed the retrofit project, which was installed on the roof of the hotel. This system is projected to produce 29% oft he hotel’s annual hot water usage. Additional funding of approximately $50,000 for this system was provided by the Connecticut Clean Energy Fund (CCEF) through its Solar Thermal Incentive Program via the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act.

The Delamar Greenwich Harbor is Sound Solar Systems’ first commercial thermal project.

“We’re delighted to have designed and installed a solar hot water system to help this landmark hotel go green and save money on their power bills,” said Tony Savino, principal of Sound Solar, in a prepared release.

Founded on the platform of a construction company, Sound Solar Systems offers cost evaluation, design, construction, and financing options for a multitude fo renewable energy technologies.

“It is exciting to be involved in having cutting edge green technology in the Delamar Greenwich Hotel and we look forward to incorporating similar initiatives in our other properties,” said Charles Mallory, founder and general partner of the Delamar Greenwich Harbor. “Continuing the green theme, we recently acquired an electric hybrid launch to offer our guests harbor and cocktail cruises. It has been a pleasure to work with the people at Sound Solar Systems who delivered this clean energy system on time and on budget, as promised.”
