Bronx Health Clinic Gets “Greener” With New Solar Wall 

Urban Health Plan’s Simpson Pavillion at Simpson and Westchester Ave

Who says you can’t go green? 

Urban Health Plan, one of the best health care providers in The Bronx (ok so I might be a little biased since it’s where I go but they really are quite amazing), has installed a solar panel wall to make the already LEED Gold Certified even greener. 


The solar  wall was installed along the side of the building and is expected to produce about 10% of Urban Health Plan’s Simpson Pavillion’s energy needs. 

Plus, it will save UHP approximately $230,000 over the course of 25 years. That’s $9,200 that it can redirect to many of the wellness programs offered there.

Solar Reviews wrote: “We’re a progressive organization, so everything we do—from providing care, to employing people to our energy efficiency efforts—we do the best we can,” said Paloma Izquierdo-Hernandez, president and CEO of Urban Health Plan. “Adding this distinctive solar system not only helps our environment; it saves money that we can put back into services for our community.”

Not to shabby for The Bronx but it shouldn’t be a surprise as we’re home to the only LEED Certified Neighborhood.
