Solar Frontier supplied approximately 29,400 CIS thin-film modules to a 3.8MW Public Service Electric and Gas Company (PSE&G) installation in Burlington County, New Jersey. Mill Creek Solar Farm is part of PSE&G’s Solar 4 All scheme, aimed at adding 80MW solar electric generation capacity to the company’s capabilities by the end of 2012. Mill Creek Solar Farm was designed, developed and built by juwi solar.
It is hoped the project will provide enough ‘clean’ electricity to power 575 average-sized New Jersey homes as well as create new jobs in the area. The project underlines the increasing importance of CIS technology in the PV sector and reiterates PSE&G’s commitment to delivering emission-free energy.
“We are proud to have worked closely with Solar Frontier on its first deployment of modules to a large-scale utility project in the US. We firmly believe performance will meet or exceed our clients’ expectations” said Michael Martin, juwi solar’s CEO.
Al Matos, PSE&G’s vice president, added, “A main objective of our Solar 4 All program was to help develop a strong solar industry, By partnering with a wide range of companies like juwi solar and Solar Frontier, we are helping businesses take root and grow, creating jobs and helping New Jersey to meet its renewable energy goals.”
