Public Service Electric and Gas (PSE&G) said it has begun the first phase of construction at the 4.4MW Yardville Solar Farm in Hamilton Township, NJ. The power plant is one of four ground-mounted solar farms that the utility is developing as part of its $515 million Solar 4 All program.The company expects to develop more than 20 solar projects, which represents an investment of more than $140 million that will create almost 300 jobs and provide New Jersey with 30MW of solar-generated power. The Yardville project will be comprised of 15,750 crystalline-silicon solar panels covering 15.75 acres of PSE&G property and will be connected directly to the grid, eventually producing enough electricity to power about 720 average-size homes.The brand of solar modules to be deployed, other details on the balance of systems, and timeline for construction and activation of the power plant were not disclosed.Along with the Yardville site, PSE&G is developing three other ground-mounted solar installations on properties it owns in Linden (3.2MW), Edison (2MW), and Trenton (1.3MW).The company is also building a 1MW system on the roof of its Central Electric headquarters in Somerset and a 700KW installation at its Edison Training and Development Center facility.
