New Jersey utility Public Service Electric and Gas Company (PSE&G) plans to extend its Solar 4 All Program by building 100MW of solar PV on landfill sites in New Jersey.
The utility has applied to the New Jersey Board of Public Utilities to develop the PV plants on around 10 landfill and brownfield sites over four years.
The ‘Extension II Program’ will require US$296 million investment over a five-year period pertaining to risk and contingency, implementation and construction and O&M.
The program supports New Jersey in meeting its land use and renewable energy policy objectives as part of the State’s Energy Master Plan. The projects are also expected to generate around 575 direct full-time jobs.
In 2014, PSE&G began construction of an 11.18MW solar plant, atop the Kinsley Landfill in New Jersey, which has been closed since 1987.
Solar Media’s Energy Storage Summit Americas has arrived in Fort Lauderdale to provide a platform for this next step in renewable energy industry. The energy storage market and development brings as many challenges as it does advancements, with a myriad of technologies, capacities, functions, and lifespans. With most projects still in development and technologies with sparse track records, knowledge in this fledgling industry is invaluable. Investors, utilities, consumers, and all renewable energy participants have to not only understand the market, but be able comfortable enough to make the right investment in energy storage to not be left behind the curve. Our event is the platform for companies to bridge the gap between “future energy storage plans” and “installed energy storage”. Join us to discuss the latest news on standardization, comparing battery technologies, financing projects in different markets, resilient microgrids, and storage use for emergency response and aid, among many others. We will not only to educate and familiarize attendees on the capabilities and benefits of energy storage, but make the connections, and introductions, to accelerate energy storage development in North, Central, and South America.
