NORCROSS LAUDS SOLAR FARM GROUNDBREAKING

 

 
(DEPTFORD) – Senator Donald Norcross (D-Camden/Gloucester) joined Senate President Stephen Sweeney (D-Gloucester), Ralph LaRossa of PSE&G, Commissioner Bob Martin of the NJ Department of Environmental Protection, and other dignitaries to kick off the Kinsley Solar Farm project.
 
“Sustainability is about more than creating green energy, it’s also about creating jobs and supporting innovation,” Senator Norcross added. “PSE&G’s investment in solar energy is an investment in our future.”
 
The Kinsley Solar Farm is PSE&G’s third landfill project under their Solar 4 All program, and at 35 acres is the energy company’s largest project to date. When it’s completed, the Kinsley Solar Farm will produce enough energy to power 2,000 homes annually, with 36,841 solar panels. The project is creating 100 jobs for area electricians, engineers, heavy equipment operators, ironworkers, laborers and truck drivers.
 
“Through their Solar 4 All program, PSE&G has been able to transform sites once written off as lost to development into sustainable energy generators,” Senator Norcross added. “In this way, they have been able to turn blight into bright.”
 
The PSE&G Solar 4 All program creates large-scale, grid-connected solar projects on roof tops, parking lots, solar farms, utility poles, landfills, and brownfields. Since its launch in 2009, PSE&G has invested $480 million in the program, creating 1,600 jobs.
