New Jersey, United States — Dow Jones & Company has selected SunPower to install a solar power system with 4.1 megawatts (MW) of capacity at Dow Jones’ corporate offices in central New Jersey. The system will include 3.6 MW of elevated solar panels above parking areas and a 522-kilowatt rooftop installation.
When completed early next year, the system will be one of the nation’s largest solar power installations operating at a corporate site, and is expected to generate the equivalent of 15 percent of current electricity needs for Dow Jones’ South Brunswick campus. The system is being partially financed through PSE&G’s Solar Loan Program, through which PSE&G offers loans for solar power.
At the site, SunPower is installing SunPower T5 Solar Roof Tile, a non-penetrating rooftop product that combines a high-efficiency SunPower solar panel, frame and mounting system into a single pre-engineered unit.
“SunPower offered turnkey design and installation services and high-efficiency solar technology to optimize the power generated by the system and the savings that Dow Jones will achieve on their electricity costs,” said Tom Leyden, managing director at SunPower. “We applaud their leadership in taking advantage of PSE&G’s Solar Loan Program. Clean, reliable solar power makes good sense today for businesses and our environment.”
