Mars and PSE&G have completed a 2-megawatt (MW) solar photovoltaic project in at the company's facility in New Jersey. The project is the first completed by PSE&G Solar Source, a subsidiary of PSE&G. The solar garden is comprised of more than 28,000 ground-mounted solar panels on 18 acres adjacent to Mars Chocolate North America's headquarters, where more than 1,200 associates work and M&M'S Brand Chocolate Candies are manufactured.

PSE&G this week also received approval from state regulators to expand its innovative solar loan program by approximately US $143 million to finance the installation of an additional 51 megawatts of solar energy systems.
