by admin

Solar Landscapes has announced that it has completed the first construction of 46 community solar projects approved by the New Jersey Public Utilities Commission (NJBPU) in the second year of its Community Solar Energy Pilot Program.

The first completed second-year project in New Jersey is at Neptune’s Extra Space Storage site. This is his one of 10 sites owned by the company hosting his second year of community solar projects in the Solar Landscape. Extra Space Storage’s total 6.5 MW community solar portfolio covers 800,000 square feet of rooftop solar powering more than 1,400 homes in his neighborhood.

“We are thrilled to be a part of this community solar project. Extra Space Storage has been installing solar installations at our locations for over 10 years, and we are excited to bring solar power to our community. This new initiative is an exciting development,” said McKall Morris, Senior Manager, Communications and Sustainability. “Partnering with Solar Landscapes on this project is fully consistent with our commitment to being a good corporate citizen and participating in environmental initiatives that benefit our communities, customers, employees and shareholders.”

NJBPU’s Community Solar Energy Pilot Programis part of Gov. Murphy’s Clean Energy Agenda to provide access to renewable energy for those who were previously unable to install solar panels due to high costs, lack of roof control, or shady properties. to expand.

The Neptune Community Solar Site will generate approximately 500 kW of energy, with nine other sites in New Jersey towns across seven counties.

  • egg harbor
  • hohawks
  • jersey city
  • Lawrence
  • perlin
  • old bridge
  • Iselin
  • Neptune
  • Hazlett
  • toms river

The diversity of these towns highlights the innovation of New Jersey’s community solar program. This allows the commercial real estate sector to make a significant contribution to reducing carbon emissions by installing panels on the entire roof, not just the part that covers the energy needs of the building. The program also helps the commercial sector by enabling community solar subscribers (most of whom are low-income) to power their homes with renewable energy and participate in the fight against climate change. Allowing it to play a role in expanding energy equity.
