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.
Following the successful launch of Energy Storage Summit USA, we are pleased to announce its return for a 2nd year. Renowned for its quality, breadth and expertise, this event features an all-encompassing range of strategic and technical sessions on the adoption and deployment of storage. Key market drivers such as the falling price of lithium-ion batteries, investment in electric vehicle infrastructure, FERC Order 841, government incentives, grid modernization, transition from dependency on the networks to a desire for autonomy and intermittent renewable sources, all add to an exciting time for the Energy Storage value chain.
