When you think of production studios and filming you think Hollywood, right? That may be the standard but Broadway Stages in Brooklyn, New York, is giving Tinseltown a run for its money, as it makes a name for itself as the first solar-powered sound stage facility in the world. Awesome!

Broadway Stages has worked with top artists like Jay-Z, Beyonce, and Kings of Leon to produce their music, along with top films like, “The Good Shepherd” and “Duplicity,” and TV shows “The Good Wife” and “Third Watch.”

Tony Argento, owner of the film and television studio said, “The solar panel installation is our contribution to improve our neighborhood and help offset our carbon footprint.”

The facilities rooftop solar panels cut energy bills by more than $70,000 yearly, and create enough power to prevent the burning of 75,000 gallons of diesel fuel. The change has also created local work and jobs.

City Councilman Jim Gennaro, Chairman of the Council’s Environmental Committee, recently toured the facilities and commented, “I applaud Broadway Stages for becoming the first solar powered sound stage in the world, in turn, creating 10 full-time jobs and more than 50 part-time jobs for New Yorkers.” He added, “Their initiative is a shining example of renewable energy investment and its various benefits – including the creation of green-collar jobs and growth of the local green-economy.”

Here’s hoping Hollywood calls and picks up on this exciting way to go green!
