Princeton Headquarters Upgrades

Located at 804 Carnegie Blvd., our new offices in Princeton are in the works, featuring state-of-the-art green technology and added benefits for all employees.

  • A smart micro-grid will power the entire campus by generating, transmitting and distributing electricity on-site.
  • An EV-friendly parking experience will feature 13 NRG eVgo charging stations, two of which are vehicle-to-grid capable.
  • A 400 kW combined heat and power plant will supply electricity, hot water and air conditioning for the 130,000 square feet of office space.
  • Two 30-foot upright wind power turbine models are sure to turn heads near the building’s front entrance.
  • The headquarters will be built using sustainable materials, including zinc, on the exterior and recycled fly ash and wood inside. An interior living wall will feature a variety of plants for added air purification benefits.
  • The headquarters’ solar arrays, totaling 800 kW, will cover the roof, parking canopies and two custom pergolas. The amount of electricity produced from the solar array is enough to power two-thirds of the building at peak capacity. The solar array not only provides clean electricity, but it is a one-of-a-kind structure built to capture 12,000 gallons of rain water used for all the building’s plumbing needs.
