A large scale, innovative solar energy system has begun generating electricity for the Camden County Municipal Utilities Authority's wastewater treatment facility in Camden City. The 1.8 megawatt system is comprised of more than 7,200 solar panels and will produce around 2.2 million kilowatt-hours of electricity per year, enough to meet the needs of more than 150 homes. The power will reduce the facility's dependence on grid power and is projected to save more than $160,000 in electricity costs during the first year of operation alone.
