433 West Main, Downtown Durham Solar

Yes Solar Solutions partnered with Hem + Spire, a real estate investment and management company that is based out of New York City.  The company is building a portfolio of revitalization projects right here in North Carolina.  The company has acquired four Durham, North Carolina properties in three years.  Yes Solar Solutions was chosen to install solar on their investment at 433 West Main, in Durham.   In historic downtown Durham, 433 was built in 1973 and is conveniently located in the downtown loop.  With available square footage of over 7,885 RSF, solar panels offer an environmentally friendly and stylish way to reduce energy costs.  The timeless quality of this building is retained after the renovation.  The design, aligning with the city’s historic architecture, and the creation of a modern workspace integrates perfectly into the vibrant and diverse community in Durham.  Specializing in the restoration and reinvention of historic commercial properties, Hem + Spire approaches each building as an opportunity to invest in the community.  Solar panels are a great fit for this building!
