OCI Solar Power’s Vineland Solar IV project begins operation

Solar IV, the first solar plant in Vineland, New Jersey, has been completed and begun commercial operation. Vineland Solar IV, developed on 38 acres in Delsea Drive by OCI Solar Power, contains more than 13,000 PV modules and the project generates a total of 3MW. The energy is sold to the Vineland Municipal Electric Utility and will power local homes and businesses.

Vineland Solar IV is one of two OCI Solar projects in the area and the second project, Elmer Road, is anticipated to begin construction in the summer.

Nick Bullinger, chief operating officer for OCI Solar, commented on the project: “The completion of the Vineland Solar IV facility is another big step toward creating a more sustainable and green future for the Vineland community. It is the first of two projects for OCI Solar in Vineland and we are grateful for the community’s partnership and support. The second project on Elmer Road is expected to begin construction in early summer 2012.”
