New Jersey, United States [RenewableEnergyWorld.com] The Atlantic City Convention & Visitors Authority (ACCVA) announced that it has awarded Pepco Energy Services, a subsidiary of Pepco Holdings, Inc., a 20-year power purchase agreement (PPA) with the Atlantic City Convention Center (ACCC) to install one of the largest single roof-mounted solar arrays in the United States.
Under the 20-year contract, Pepco Energy Services will build, own, operate and maintain the 2.36-megawatt solar array for ACCVA at the ACCC. Construction will begin during the month of June and will be completed by December 31, 2008.
“We congratulate the Atlantic City Convention & Visitors Authority and Pepco Energy Services on their agreement,” said Jeanne Fox, President of the New Jersey Board of Public Utilities. “This is an example of the kind of initiatives we hope to see as we transition to the sale or trade of solar renewable energy certificates (SRECs) to pay for solar projects.”
