A signed agreement between United Solar, New Jersey Resources Clean Energy Ventures, and Adler Development will see United provide 3.9MW of solar laminates on Adler’s roof space. Adler will lease over 900,000 square feet of unoccupied roof space to New Jersey Resources for 20 years. Tenants of the buildings being used for the solar projects will be offered a power purchase agreement from New Jersey Resources.
“This is a significant opportunity for United Solar to highlight its suite of Uni-Solar rooftop products that showcase our industry leading flexible, thin-film, low impact and low profile solar laminates,” said Mark Morelli, president and CEO of United Solar’s parent company, Energy Conversion Devices. “New Jersey Resources and the state of New Jersey have shown great leadership in embracing the use of solar power as a clean, reliable and effective alternative energy source, and we look forward to creating more opportunities there in the near future.”
Four Adler rooftops are undergoing preparation for the solar installations, with modules being produced and shipped from United Solar’s manufacturing plant in Michigan. The companies look for grid connection to occur sometime this fall.
