Delaware, United States [RenewableEnergyWorld.com] The Vineland Solar One Partnership and SunPower Corporation have completed 2.3 megawatts (MW) of a 4.1-MW solar power system being constructed at the Landis Sewerage Authority in Vineland, New Jersey. When fully built out next year, it will be the largest operating solar power system in the state.
The plant features SunPower solar panels installed on a ground-mounted, fixed-tilt system. Vineland Solar One Partnership, which developed and financed the project, is a consortium of organizations including Conectiv Energy, the Vineland Municipal Electric Utility (VMEU), the City of Vineland and the Landis Sewerage Authority.
SunPower designed and is constructing the system. Conectiv Energy owns the solar renewable energy credits (SRECs) associated with the system.
“Solar power makes good sense today for utilities, public agencies, businesses and homes,” said Tom Leyden, managing director at SunPower. “With SunPower’s high-efficiency solar technology, forward-thinking organizations such as Conectiv Energy and their local partners are maximizing the production of emission-free, renewable solar power and the long-term benefits it delivers.”
